To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
Your FOIA request logs covering 2016 and 2017, which include a field showing the subject of each request and a field for the final disposition.
Further, I request that these documents be sent in any digital formats in which they exist (such as PDF and Excel). Under the terms of the E-FOIA Amendments of 1996, Section 5, if a document exists in electronic format, it must be released in that format upon request.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, 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.
The Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Office acknowledges receipt of your below FOIA request. For tracking purposes, your request number is 18-077. Please refer to this number when inquiring about this request.
The minimum requirements of a FOIA request include: a request in writing, detailed description of the records being sought so that a knowledgeable official of the agency can conduct a search with reasonable effort, a statement regarding willingness to pay all fees or those up to a specified amount, and requester contact information.
Be advised that DCMA's mission is to administer contracts assigned to this agency by various DoD services in accordance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), part 42. This administrative responsibility does not allow release authority for DoD contracts that are not funded by DCMA. There is no "all encompassing" agency that maintains all DoD contracts. Please direct requests related to the Military Services, Combatant Commands, or other Defense Agencies to the appropriate organization/component that maintains the record(s) of interest. (see access http://www.dod.mil/pubs/foi/ for further guidance). If you believe that DCMA funded a contract for requested documents please provide more detail about the records being sought (contract number(s) and dates of document(s)) to facilitate a proper search. DCMA is not obligated to create, compile, or obtain a record to satisfy a FOIA request, the FOIA is not a research service.
This FOIA request has been reviewed and can now be assigned and designated for processing. A request for document search will be initiated and we will notify you of the status of your request, as necessary, to keep you informed of the progress. Currently, we are experiencing an unusually high demand for records which has created a backlog in our FOIA responses.
If you have any questions please contact the FOIA Officer at DCMA.FOIA@dcma.mil.
If you have any concerns about your request that have not been addressed by the DCMA FOIA Officer, you may contact the DCMA FOIA Public Liaison, Mr. Bruce Cole, for assistance.
