To Whom It May Concern:

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

A log of all FOIA requests made in fiscal year 2013.

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,

Jason Smathers

Hello Mr. Smathers,

This is regard to the above-referenced FOIA request you submitted to the Office of Inspector General (OIG) and the Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Information Resources (FOIA Office) on 10/21/2013. In your requests you asked for "a log of all FOIA requests made in fiscal year 2013."

On 10/22/2013, the OIG submitted your request to the DOE FOIA Office to be officially logged in to the DOE for action. At that time, the FOIA Office informed the OIG, their office had received a FOIA request from you requesting the same information.

I contacted the DOE FOIA Officer, Alexander Morris, earlier today and was informed the review of the responsive information is near completion and hopefully will be provided to you by the end of the month.

If you need further updates, please contact the HQ FOIA Office at 202/586-5955.
