To Whom It May Concern:

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

Any and all Department of Energy Office of International Affairs records related to agency protocols for updating, changing, and maintaining the content of public-facing agency websites, including, but not limited to changes to text and other web content (images, links, etc.), additions and removals of webpages and databases/datasets - especially where these protocols lay out the specific procedures that your agency follows to comply with the Federal Records Act and other federal records laws and regulations, or processes, procedures, or methods that are unique or different from, or provide greater detail to, general requirements under the Federal Records Act or other federal records laws and regulations. This includes manuals, guides, and all other communications (including emails) describing these procedures and processes.

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.

Sincerely,

Sarah Lamdan

Ms. Lamdan,

We have received your FOIA request at the Department of Energy and it has been assigned request number HQ-2017-00808-F. I am writing to inform you that we are required to establish a fee agreement with you. DOE begins charging fees at $15.00, so if the processing of your request does not exceed that amount you will not be charged fees. However, before we can go forward with your request, you must agree to pay fees. We can use the $15.00 minimum as the amount for the fee agreement if you would like. Additionally, we can set $15.00 as the maximum amount that you are willing to pay before being notified if DOE anticipates charging additional fees for the processing of your request.

Note that you have been classified as an "other" requester. Requesters in this category are entitled to two hours of search time and 100 pages at no cost.

Please let me know if you have another email address you'd like me to use or a phone number where I can reach you.

Thank you,
Natalie

Thank you very much for the fee agreement. Now that we have that in place, I would like to establish a time frame for DOE's search for the records you requested. May I suggest from January 20, 2017 to present? If that doesn't work for you, please provide an alternate time frame.

Thank you again,
