To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

All correspondence from John C. Beale, a former deputy assistant administrator in the Office of Air and Radiation, from Jan. 20, 2009 to Aug. 1, 2013. This includes correspondence from any non-public email accounts used by Beale and maintained by the EPA.

Beale was recently charged with stealing more than $900,000 from the agency: http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/courts_law/ex-epa-official-charged-with-stealing-nearly-900k-over-13-year-period/2013/08/23/799a7532-0c35-11e3-89fe-abb4a5067014_story.html

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

CJ Ciaramella

Dear CJ Ciaramella:

This email is in reference to your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request dated August 27, 2013, in which you requested all correspondence from John C. Beale, from January 20, 2009 to August 1, 2013.

Although the agency believes this may not be a properly formulated FOIA request, the agency will respond to your request in the interest of transparency. However, we will be unable to respond to your request within the FOIA's 20-day statutory time period because of the need to search for and collect the requested records from other offices that are separate from the office processing the request and the need to search for, collect and appropriately examine a voluminous amount of separate and distinct records which are potentially responsive to your request.

We are currently searching for and compiling the information you requested. We expect to be able to respond to your request within 10 days of the original due date for responding to your request.

If you have any questions about this matter, please contact me at (202) 564-3277. Please know that we appreciate your interest in the EPA and our mission to protect public health and the environment. We remain committed to assisting you with your FOIA request.
