Hello,

We got this responsive document in the mail and saw that the cover letter states it will be available in the online reading room (http://www.northcom.mil/FOIA/nav/)

When we went, however, there is text indicating a link but it's not actually linking anywhere. Would you be able to make that go live?

Thanks

From MuckRock to USNORTHCOM on Aug. 30, 2012:

Hello,

MuckRock has begun processing the hard copy of CDRUSNROTHCOM CONPLAN 3501-08. While the cover letter that accompanied the DSCA CONPLAN indicated that the document was fully releasable, it seems some pages may have been omitted. Details for the two sections below.

EXHIBIT 1 TO TAB A TO APPENDIX 19 TO ANNEX C TO USNORTHCOM CONPLAN 3501, "ANTICIPATED FORCE REQUIREMENTS BY PHASE": As sent, this exhibit includes force requirements for Phase I only. The pages included in Exhibit C-19-A-1 go from C-19-A-1-1 through C-10-A-1-6.

APPENDIX 21 TO ANNEX C TO USNORTHCOM CONPLAN 3501, "NATIONAL SPECIAL SECURITY EVENTS (NSSE)": As sent, this appendix begins at page C-21-3 with item "b. Special Events (SE)", rather than with page C-21-1 as expected.

Please confirm the full range of pages that correspond to these two sections of the document (both beginning and end page), and whether any pages have been omitted from the hard copy of the DSCA CONPLAN as it was sent to MuckRock. Please confirm whether any omitted pages will be included in the digital version posted to the USNORTHCOM online reading room.

Best,
Shawn Musgrave
