Good morning,

This is in response to your e-mail below concerning the processing of your request. This office handles FOIA requests for the Office of the Secretary of Defense and the Joint Staff (OSD/JS) only. Please note that it is not within the power of our office to impose deadlines on any other federal agency, including those agencies within OSD/JS.

Unfortunately, we have a FOIA backlog of open requests. You may not be aware that our office processes all incoming FOIA requests on a first-in, first-out, basis, a practice which has been recognized by the courts. Your request will be processed in chronological order based upon the date it was received. Department of Defense FOIA Regulation allows agencies with significant pending requests to process those requests in a multi-track processing system, based upon the date of receipt and the amount of work and time involved in processing the request. In fairness to other requesters, we ask your indulgence in allowing us to function in accordance with existing queues for responding to requests. We hope that you can bear with us and understand our problem with volumes of requests.

I have previously reached out to the office conducting the search for your FOIA request and have been provided an EDC of September 17, 2018, which is stated in the email traffic below. Please understand this is only an estimate and that we hope to complete the processing of your request by September 17, 2018. Like all estimates this is subject to change. Once I received the response from the agency conducting the search, I will act on your request as soon as possible and respond directly to you.

I appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter and regret this delay and any inconvenience it may bring you. Please contact me if you have any further questions regarding your case.

Thank you,
