To Whom It May Concern:

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

I am a media requester and requesting these documents as part of my reporting on matters in the public interest. I agree to pay up to $25 in fees as long as I am properly categorized as a media requester.

Some of my previous reporting is available here:

Mr. Morisy,

This is an interim response to your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request which was received in this office on June 17, 2016. Your attached request has been assigned case number 16-F-1165 for tracking purposes, and we ask that you use that number when referring to your request.

We will be unable to respond to your request within the FOIA's 20 day statutory time period as there are unusual circumstances which impact on our ability to quickly process your request. These unusual circumstances are: (a) the need to search for and collect records from a facility geographically separated from this Office; (b) the potential volume of records responsive to your request; and (c) the need for consultation with one or more other agencies or DoD components having a substantial interest in either the determination or the subject matter of the records. For these reasons, your request has been placed in our complex processing queue and will be worked in the order the request was received. Our current administrative workload is 1,761 open requests.

If you have any questions, please contact me, the Action Officer assigned your request, at megan.b.farrell2.civ@mail.mil or 571-372-0409.

If you are not satisfied with this action, you have the right to appeal to the appellate authority, Ms. Joo Chung, Director of Oversight and Compliance, Office of the Secretary of Defense, by writing directly to ODCMO Directorate for Oversight and Compliance, 4800 Mark Center Drive, ATTN: DPCLTD, FOIA Appeals, Mailbox# 24, Alexandria, VA 22350-1700. Your appeal must be postmarked within 60 calendar days of the date of this response. Alternatively, you may use the OSD FOIA request portal at http://pal.whs.mil/palMain.aspx or email your appeal to OSD.FOIAPolicy@mail.mil. If you use email, please include the words "FOIA Appeal" in the subject of the email. Please also reference case number 16-F-1165 in any appeal correspondence.
