To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

(1) The Classification Management Tools User Manual and (2) all Quick Reference Guides published by the Classification Management and Collaboration Group (“CMCG”).

Public dissemination of the reference materials used by CIA staff to do classification and declassification review would prove invaluable to the public’s understanding of how CIA’s classification and declassification process actually works. The two Quick Reference Guides already publicly available—the September 2008 Classification Process Quick Reference Guide CMCG QRG #08CP001 and the October 2008 Classification Management Tools Agency Automated Classification Guide Quick Reference Guide CMCG QRG #08CMT002—have already added significant value to the public’s understanding of these processes.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
