Mr. Kaplan,

We are currently processing your two Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, FOIA Control Nos. 2018-492 and 2018-493. In FOIA Control No. 2018-492 you seek "all communications . . . to and from Chairman Ajit Pai and Commissioners . . . containing the word 'Sinclair' from Jan 20, 2017 to [March 16, 2018.]" In FOIA Control No. 2018-493 you seek "[a]ll documents . . . containing the word 'Sinclair' from Jan 20, 2017 to [March 16, 2018.]"

With respect to FOIA Control No. 2018-492, the fee that you have offered to pay would not cover the costs associated with processing your request. With respect to FOIA Control No. 2018-493, the Commission does not maintain a unified, searchable correspondence repository, and thus individual staff members search for records responsive to a particular FOIA request. Given that the Commission has approximately 1,700 employees, it is not feasible to ask each employee to search for responsive records.

Please contact me with your telephone number so that we can discuss arranging a time to discuss the possibility of narrowing the scope of or otherwise clarifying your two FOIA requests. If I don't hear from you by Tuesday, April 3, 2018, we will assume you are no longer interested in these two requests and will close them accordingly.

Good morning,

I would be happy to discuss this over the phone, please feel free to call me at (707) 972-4902. In reviewing my two requests, I think we can let the request, for all documents related to "Sinclair" go and really focus on this one.

I look forward to your call.

Best,
Elijah Kaplan
