Hello Mr. Ladd,

This email responds to the automated status check(s) regarding your FOIA Case 76434. As you may be aware, we continue to experience delays in processing. Currently, our internal organizations are conducting a search for responsive material. Once the search is complete (and if material is located), we will determine the amount and complexity of the gathered information and provide additional updates. In many cases the material will 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
Chief - Initial Processing, NSA/CSS FOIA

Dear Mr. Ladd

This responds to your recent request for a status update for case 76434. Your case is in one of our initial processing queues pending the completion of document search. Due to the significant increase in FOIA requests, it is often difficult estimate the processing timeline. Estimating an actual completion date for your case is also difficult, as it is entirely dependent on whether or not document are located, how many documents are found, and the complexity of any document located. The average completion date for those cases is 4-5 years. Please be advised that this estimate is subject to change.

Thank you for your patience,
