Good Morning Mr. Smathers,

I called you this morning using the numbers you provided in your request and left a voicemail message. Again, please note the request is overly broad and in order to conduct a reasonable search of responsive records, we are asking the following:

o What is the search timeframe for your request? (FY2009 or FY2010)
o Please provide a list of the additional staff members associated with your FOIA request

We are requesting you provide this material within 5 business days. In the event you are unable to comply with narrowing the scope of the request by February 4, 2011 COB, we will close your request using the withdrawal process.

Regards,

Steven D. Lawrence
