Good Afternoon, Mr. Fiet:

The program office is conducting a search for records responsive to your request. Once all responsive records have been identified, I will be in a better position to provide you with a status (i.e. how long it is likely to take for me to process the records, apply redaction, etc.) or date of interim response and/or completion.

I will provide you with a follow-up status as soon as the records have been received from the program office that maintains them.

If you have any further questions/concerns please don't hesitate to let me know.

Kindest regards,

Marqui
