Ms. Lipton,

Thank you for your inquiry regarding OFAC FOIA #2015-08-075 .

In our September 1, 2015 acknowledgement letter (attached), OFAC informed you that since neither of your FOIA requests to OFAC numbered #2015-08-075 and #2015-08-076 contained an agreement to pay assessable fees, you were required to provide OFAC, in writing, your willingness to pay the estimated cost of $50 per request if you desired us to process them. We asked that you provide us with that information by October 2, 2015.

It is now October 8, 2015, and we have not received a written agreement from you indicating your willingness to pay the estimated costs of $50 per request. If we do not receive such an agreement from you by COB today, October 8, 2015, OFAC will administratively close both requests.

If you have any questions regarding this matter, you may email OFACFOIAOffice@treasury.gov<mailto:OFACFOIAOffice@treasury.gov> or contact the FOIA Requester Service Center at 202-622-2500, option 3.
Regards,

The OFAC FOIA Team
