Hello Ms. Fendt:
After conducting a search in the Washington Office (WO) of our national FOIA database we were able to locate a request from you that was received on 6/22/2022 and assigned tracking number 2022-FS-R3-03952-F.
The Forest Service Southwestern Region FOIA Service Center has been Cc'd on this email and someone from that office should be able to provide you with a status update.
Please reference your case number 2022-FS-R3-03952-F in future communications about this FOIA request.

Thank you Alisha. Let me know. We are just looking for the contractors
related to the Hermit's Peak Calf Canyon Fire. So it should only cover a
period from April until now. We do not require records related to the Las
Dispensas Prescribed burn before it became a forest fire.
Thanks again and let me know if that helps.
We are tying to confirm the status of the contracting records. If they have not been officially turned over to the forest, the response may be "no records" until the records are transferred. If that is the case, you may have to re-submit your request at a later date once the records are in our control, then we can process them under FOIA.
