Dear Mr. Peck,
This responds to your recent request for a status update for case 82334. Your case is in one of our initial processing queues pending assignment to a Case Office for further evaluation and/or document search if applicable. This means we still need to search for documents, after it's assigned to a Case Officer. Due to the significant increase in FOIA requests, it is often difficult estimate the processing timeline. However, we can estimate that your case may be assigned to a Case Officer within the next 12 months. 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 3-4 years. Please be advised that this estimate is subject to change.

Thank you for your patience,

An interim response, stating the request is being processed.

From: National Security Agency

Apologies for the delay in responding, your request is currently in out our first-in/first out processing queue. NSA processes requests on a multi-track basis: first-in/first-out within queues based on the level of difficulty and/or volume of responsive material. This method of responding to requesters is advocated by both the Department of Defense, of which NSA is a component, and the Department of Justice. The multi-track system is employed in fairness to all requesters. At this time, there are a significant number of cases ahead of yours in the queue, and we estimate it could be 24 - 36 months before your request is complete.

We appreciate your patience as we continue to work through the backlog of cases and will provide additional information when we are able.

v/r

Mike Shields
