To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

A copy of the manual, handbook or other guide(s) used in processing FOIA requests received by the agency.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

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.

Sincerely,

Dear MuckRock Requestors:

This email responds to your automated status requests, regarding the status of Cases 77553, 76469, 76471, 77355, and 75408. These cases are still in our initial processing queue pending search for responsive material. Once the search for documents is initiated and/or complete, the responsive material is then compiled in our backlog for review. Due to the significant increase in FOIA requests, it is difficult estimate the completion date at this time. However, we do not anticipate these cases coming up for a search tasking, if applicable, for approximately 12 months.

We appreciate your patience thus far.

Dear Mr. Musgrave,

This email responds to the automated status checks submitted for Case 76469. The case is still in our complex backlog queue, pending assignment to a first level review. Please be advised that each case must go through two levels of review before a release determination can be made. Given the volume of our backlog and the fluctuation of queue placement due to consults from other agencies that predate your request, it’s likely that your case may not be assigned to a first level review within the next 12 months. At this time, the estimated completion date is approximately 2-3 years.

We appreciate your patience thus far.
