To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act.
I request copies of the following documents:
-- A transcript of the June 4, 2015 Joint Meeting of the Bone, Reproductive and Urologic Drugs Advisory Committee (BRUDAC) and the Drug Safety and Risk Management (DSaRM) Advisory Committee Meeting
-- Copies of any 208(b)(1), 208(b)(3) or any other kinds of waivers issued for the BRUDAC/DSaRM meeting of June 4 2015
-- Copies of any 208(b)(1), 208(b)(3) or any other kinds of waivers issued for the Reproductive Health Drugs Advisory Committee meeting of June 18 2010
-- Any e-mails or other correspondence with the Office of Government Ethics regarding any issued waivers for the above-mentioned Advisory Committee Meetings
In case any of these requests are denied, I request that a reason for the denial is given in writing, and the non-exempt portions of those records be released with the omissions clearly explained.
If possible, I would like to receive the documents in electronic format -- PDFs, DOCs, TXTs, RTFs, TIFFs, JPGs, GIFs, or other commonly-used formats would be fine.
This particular FOI request is intended to provide information for a journalistic work in progress which is intended for publication in a major media outlet. As a member of the media, I am entitled to be placed in the "news media, educational, or scientific requesters" category. As such, I should only be charged for duplication fees beyond the first 100 pages.
Further, I assert that this request is in the public interest, because it is likely to contribute significantly to public understanding of the operations and activities of the government, and I therefore request a waiver of fees.
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.
