To Whom It May Concern:

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

List of "FOIA Reading Rooms" operated or used by the agency, as required by 5 U.S.C. 552(a)(2)(A). FOIA Reading Rooms which have been operated in the past, yet are now defunct or re-purposed, are also in scope of this request. Locations for any FOIA Reading Room operated or used by the agency since November 1, 1996 requested, if available.

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 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, DVD-R, or BD-R 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,

Martin Peck

Dear Mr. Peck,

This is an interim response to your October 19, 2015, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for "a list of FOIA reading rooms." We received your request on October 19, 2015, and assigned it case number FOIA-2016-00060. We currently have an administrative workload of 760 open cases. If you have any questions about your request, please feel free to contact me. Mr. Peck, please give me a phone number for your Office.

Sincerely,

Dear Mr. Peck:

This is in response to your October 19, 2015, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for a copy of FOIA reading rooms. We received your request on October 19, 2015, and assigned it case number FOIA-2016-00060.

This office is responsible for processing all FOIA and Privacy Act requests for access to records maintained by the Department of Defense, Office of Inspector General (DoD OIG). As you may know, the FOIA requires federal agencies to provide reasonably described records that contain information that is responsive to a FOIA request. See 5 U.S.C. § 552(a)(3)(A)(i). In practice, this means that our office is tasked to respond to requests received from the public for records or documents in the possession and control of the DoD OIG, which have been described in such a manner as to permit a non-random search by those who are familiar with such records. Your request does not seek access to records, but FOIA reading rooms. In view of the foregoing, we are not able to process your request under the FOIA. With this action, I am administratively closing your request.

Sincerely,

R,

I am fascinated and impressed by your interpretation of my request, such that "Your request does not seek access to records, but FOIA reading rooms.". Please let me be clear. I am not seeking access to FOIA reading rooms. I am not seeking activity records regarding FOIA reading rooms.

In fact, the only information I am requesting is FOIA reading room metadata - E.g. their number, and their location.

I hereby appeal this refusal to grant my request. Thank you!
