To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
A copy of contracts this agency has with Deloitte / Deloitte Consulting from FY2011 to the date that this request is processed.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, 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.
After a careful review of your FOIA request, we determined that your request, as written, is not reasonably described, as it does not specifically identify the records which you are seeking with enough detail to enable employees who are familiar with the subject area to locate records without placing an unreasonable burden upon the agency. In addition to the information provided, your request description should include the specific DHS contract numbers of interest. If such contracts exist, you may find the associated contract numbers via the Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS), which is accessible from https://www.fpds.gov/fpdsng_cms/; accessed April 20, 2016. The FPDS allows for anyone to register and access records pertaining to all federal agency procurement actions, including the ability to run a variety of reports based on specified criteria.
Please be aware that DHS is decentralized and each DHS component has its own FOIA Officer. If detailed information on a specific contract is desired, please contact the FOIA Officer at the funding component directly with the specific contract number(s). A list of DHS disclosure contacts is available on our website from http://www.dhs.gov/foia-contact-information; accessed April 20, 2016.
