Good Morning,

This FOIA request was administratively closed on 7/31/14 due to no response to correspondence sent on 3/24/14. The FOIA office indicated that the initial request was too broad. I have included another copy of that letter here.

In addition, I would like to note that the case number you have provided is not correct. The only request from MuckRock we have tagged to that number is 2014-TSPA-00244 _not_ TSFO.

Thank you,
FOIA
