Communications

From: Runa A. Sandvik

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request all guidelines, presentations, policy statements, legal opinions, memoranda, briefs, training manuals, emails, records and any other documents including communications and procurements relating to the equities resolution process for handling "0-day" vulnerabilities. The basis for this process is documented in formal NSA policy, which includes the adjudication process.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. I am a published independent reporter and a current contributor to Forbes (http://www.forbes.com/sites/runasandvik/). I have also had my journalism published on domestic and international blogs.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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,

Runa A. Sandvik

Good Morning Ms. Sandvik,

This email responds to the automated status check(s) regarding your FOIA Case 77538. As noted in our acknowledgment letter to you, we continue to experience delays in processing. Currently, our internal organizations are conducting a search for responsive material. Once the search is complete (if material located), we determine the amount and complexity of the gathered information and provide additional updates. In many cases the material well require detailed review or collaboration (external or internal), thus it will be placed on our backlog queue pending assignment to a reviewer.

We appreciate your patience,
Regards,
Cindy Blacker

Ms. Sandvik,

This responds to your recent request for a status update for case 77538. Please be advised that we have completed the search for responsive material, and hope to have an interim response out to you in the near future, ideally within the next few months. We appreciate your patience as we continue to manage the significant increase in FOIA requests. Given the volume of our backlog and the fluctuation of queue placement due to consults from other agencies that predate your request, it's likely the estimated completion date for your case is approximately 3 years. Please be advised that this estimate is subject to change.

Thank you for your patience,

Cindy B
