Good morning Mr. Adler,

We're contacting you about the FOIA request above. As you probably recall, the FBI located approximately 1348 pages that are potentially responsive to your request. By letter dated September 13, 2019, you agreed to pay for all charges associated with this request and forwarded a check for $40. No payment was owed at that time, and your check was returned on September 23, 2019. We are now contacting you to see if you might be willing to reduce the scope of your request to place it in a smaller, potentially faster processing track.

Requests are processed in the order in which they are received through our multi-track processing system, and the FBI receives a voluminous amount of requests on a daily, weekly, monthly, and annual basis. Requests are divided into two primary tracks--simple (under 50 pages of potentially responsive documents) and complex (over 50 pages of potentially responsive documents). Complex requests are further divided into medium (51-950 pages), large (951-8000 pages), and extra-large (over 8000 pages) sub-tracks based upon request size.

Simple track requests typically require the least amount of time to process. The more potentially responsive pages a request has, the more complex it becomes, greatly increasing the time required for processing. Generally, the larger the file, the longer it takes to process. A review of your request determined that it is currently in the complex request large processing track. Given our current workload and staffing levels, it may yet be a long time before you begin to receive material from this request.

Simple track requests (up to 50 pages) currently average approximately 115 days (4 months) to complete.
Medium track requests (51-950 pages) currently average approximately 653 days (21 months) to complete.
Large track requests (951-8000 pages) currently average approximately 1,432 days (47 months) to complete.
Extra-large requests (over 8000 pages) currently average approximately 2,008 days (53 months) to complete.

Reducing the scope of your request may accelerate the processing and allow for a more timely receipt of the information you seek, as it could potentially place your request into a smaller, faster processing track. This may also reduce duplication costs, if applicable. Would you be willing to consider reducing the scope of your request? If so, we would be happy to help you to decide the best approach to take. We could potentially narrow your request by date, or if you are looking for something specific, we could approach the scope reduction process in that way.

Please let us know if you would like to reduce the scope of your request. We can be reached by email at fbi.foipa.negotiation@fbi.gov, or by phone at 540-868-1695, Monday - Friday.
