Dear Mr. Mackie:

Attached is your interim response for your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, case number 17-F-0229.

Dear Mr. Mackie,

This email is in response to your request for an update on the processing of your FOIA request, case number 17-F-0229. Please know that our office processes all incoming FOIA requests on a first-in, first-out, basis. This means that your request was placed in a queue once it was received in our office. It also means it will be placed in a queue by the office that is tasked to search for responsive records. We already have initiated just such a search for responsive records, but the timing of the results to be provided to our office will depend on the place in the queue that your request was assigned. It is conceivable that all processing could be completed and the results provided to you at an early date, but it is also possible that more time will be required. In any case, all releasable records, if any, cannot be provided to you until all processing is completed. As soon as that occurs, we will send a formal letter to you.

We have a large backlog, our current administrative workload is 2,036 open requests. Included among these open cases are requests which are less complex than others, such as your request. As the results for those less complex cases are provided to our office, we take those requests from that queue and complete our action on them, and then send them out to the requesters. This will be the way your request, too, will be handled.

We appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter.

Sincerely,

Curtis Gibbens
