To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. §552 et seq. (“FOIA”), I am requesting copies of the following public records:

(1) all documents, which include but are not necessarily limited to, schedules, calendar invites, Outlook calendar files, day calendars, appointments, meetings, attachments, meeting minutes, notations of conversation, guest lists, agenda sheets, timetables, and other written or electronic documents related to or concerning Secretary Rick Perry’s schedule, itinerary, and meetings, dating from March 2, 2017 to the present; and
(2) all documents, which include but are not necessarily limited to, schedules, calendar invites, Outlook calendar files, day calendars, appointments, meetings, attachments, meeting minutes, notations of conversation, guest lists, agenda sheets, timetables, and other written or electronic documents related to or concerning Chief of Staff Brian McCormack’s and Deputy Chief of Staff’s Daniel Wilmot’s schedule, itinerary, and meetings, dating from March 2, 2017 to the present.

I also request that you state the specific legal and factual grounds for withholding any documents or portions of documents, should you withhold any. Please identify each document that falls within the scope of this request but is withheld from release. If requested documents are located in, or originated in, another installation or bureau, I would request that you please refer this request or any relevant portion of this request to the appropriate installation or bureau.

To the extent that the information is available in electronic format, I would prefer to receive that information via email or CD, particularly if providing the information reduces the time or expense involved. Otherwise, I will expect to receive the information in paper form.

This information is being sought on behalf of ThinkProgress.org (an online news service) for dissemination to the general public and this request is not being made for commercial purposes. I am a reporter with ThinkProgress, an online news site with a national audience seeking these documents entirely for news-gathering purposes.

Please waive any applicable fees. Release of the information is in the public interest because it is likely to contribute significantly to public understanding of the operations or activities of the Government and the Department of Energy, which has broad reaching impact on the health, safety, and well-being of the American public and are currently a subject of national news value.

Please provide the records requested above regardless of your fee waiver decision. 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.

Please provide expedited processing of this request which concerns a matter of urgency. As a journalist, I am primarily engaged in disseminating information. The public has an urgent need for information because the schedules of the above individuals will help the public know who these government officials are meeting in order to make public policy decisions which will have broad reaching impacts to the health and well-being of the American public. These meetings are currently a subject of national news value.

I look forward to your reply within 10 business days, or at the latest, 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Thank you for your cooperation with this request. I am willing to discuss ways to make this request more manageable to your office. Please do not hesitate to contact me at the number above or on my direct line at 202-478-6333 or rkoronowski@thinkprogress.org.

Sincerely,

Ryan Koronowski
