All email messages sent between Warren Firschein of the FCC and Erica Goode of Booz Allen Hamilton in regards to FOIA 2013-212, filed by Michael Morisy of MuckRock.

To Whom It May Concern:
I wanted to follow up on the following Freedom of Information request, copied below, and originally submitted on Sept. 30, 2013. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response, or if further clarification is needed. You had assigned it reference number #2013-568.

Dear Mr. Sampson,
This is an update on the status of your recent FOIA request, which seeks "[a]ll email messages sent between Warren Firschein of the FCC and Erica Goode of Booz Allen Hamilton in regards to FOIA 2013-212, filed by Michael Morisy of MuckRock."
Your FOIA request is currently being processed. Please note that our office was closed during the recent extended government shutdown, which has impacted the Commission's ability to respond to your request in a timely manner. My unofficial guidance would be that the agency's response is likely to be finalized sometime within the next ten or twelve working days, but that is just an estimate; it may very well take less time than that. Accordingly, would you consent to an extention of time for the Commission to respond to your request until Friday, November 15, which would adjust the Commission's initial deadline by the number of working days lost to our office due to the shutdown?
Please don't hesitate to contact me at this e-mail address with any further questions or comments.
Yes, an extension until Nov. 15 is alright.
Please see the attached response to your recent FOIA request, which sought all email messages between me and Erica Goode in regards to FOIA 2013-212, filed by Michael Morisy.
Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or comments. I may be reached at email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>.
