Hi Kris,

I would like to revise my request to reduce the burden on the agency. I would like to limit my request to only documents within your office and exclude FOIA logs to sub-agencies. Please let me know if the fees do change.

In order to help determine my status to assess fees, I am a graduate student at Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism. This request is made for journalistic purposes.

Thank you,
Kelly

Dear Kelly Milan, Please see the attached acknowledgement letter for information concerning your FOIA matter. The tracking number for your request is 2021-00544-FOIA-OS. Due to the novel COVID-19 pandemic, HHS has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission as effectively and efficiently as possible while also adhering to the recommended safety guidelines to protect of our staff. As a result, many requesters are experiencing a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgment as well as a substantive response to your FOIA request or appeal. This is delay is caused by the referenced changes in operations. During this time, HHS has received an unprecedented amount of FOIA request submissions. As we are only able to receive requests electronically and the significant increase in volume of incoming requests, there has been an increased delay in initial intake and processing times. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience. For status updates or other inquiries, please contact our office via email or call (202)260-6933.
