Good afternoon Mr. Anderson,

This is the final response to your May 21, 2018, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, attached. Your request was received in this office on May 22, 2018, and assigned FOIA case number 18-F-1024. We ask that you use this number when referring to your request.

However, please note that your request was misdirected to this office for processing. This FOIA office only processes requests for the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) and the Joint Staff (JS). There is no central FOIA processing point for records for the entire Department of Defense (DoD). FOIA processing is decentralized and delegated to those officials of the Military Departments and various DoD Components who generate and/or maintain the records being sought or reviewed.

Please also note that the record retention for documents located within the OSD/JS is 30 years. At that point, those records are accessioned to the National Archives & Records Administration (NARA). Therefore, if you have not already done so, you may wish to submit your request to NARA, which processes their own FOIA requests. Additionally, you might want to contact the Library of Congress, which also could potentially have records responsive to your request.

This action closes your request with this office, and there are no assessable fees associated with this response.
