To Whom It May Concern:

I wanted to follow up on the following Freedom of Information request, copied below, and originally submitted on Sept. 16, 2013. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response, or if further clarification is needed.

Thank you for your help.


I am responding on behalf of the Office of Intelligence and Analysis Freedom of Information Act Officer to your follow-up request for access to FOIA logs for FY 2012 and FY 2013. We were unable to locate your original request.

As I advised you in a separate email message pertaining to your request for the FY 2013 logs, this information is posted on the DHS website. I&A has not completed its FY 2013 log; the delay was occasioned by the government shutdown. You will find the I&A log for 2013 when it has been completed; in the meantime, the 2012 log is available at

If you construe this action on your request to be a denial of access, you may submit an administrative appeal to: Associate General Counsel (General Law), U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Washington, D.C. 20528, following the procedures outlined in the DHS regulations at 6 C.F.R. § 5.9. Your envelope and letter should be marked “FOIA Appeal.” Copies of the FOIA and DHS regulations are available at Please refer to 14-IAFO-0015 in future correspondence.
