Good Evening,

This is in response to your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request,
dated 15 September 2017, for the GemTech Fish & Wildlife Contract
#INF16PX02609, start date of 9/20/16, which has been assigned tracking
number FWS-2017-01302. Our office received your request on 20 September
2017.

According to eCFR 2.6 (a) Your request must explicitly state that you will
pay all fees associated with processing the request, that you will pay all
fees up to a specified amount, and/or that you are seeking a fee waiver.

Also, according to eCFR 2.7 (a) a request should indicate your fee category
(that is whether you are a commercial-use requester, news media,
educational or noncommercial scientific institution, or other requester as
described in 2.38 and 2.39 of this part.

I have included a link to the eCFR for your reference:
http://www.ecfr.gov/cgi-bin/text-idx?c=ecfr&sid=0fc3ab3499768eebc2e3691c8cf88dec&rgn=div5&view=text&node=43:1.1.1.1.2&idno=43#sp43.1.2.b
.

Additionally, please provide a contact number. This is not mandatory, but
recommended due to faster communication.

According to eCFR 2.6 (d) If you are seeking a fee waiver, your request
must include a justification that addresses and meets the criteria in
§§2.45 and 2.48 of this part. Failure to provide sufficient justification
will result in a denial of the fee waiver request. If you are seeking a fee
waiver, you may also indicate the amount you are willing to pay if the fee
waiver is denied. This allows the bureau to process the request for records
while it considers your fee waiver request. You may also inform us of why
you believe your request meets one or more of the criteria for a
discretionary fee waiver under §2.56 of this part.

Please provide this information to me by 19 October 2017 as our office
cannot perfect your request until this information is received. If the
clarification is not received by 19 October 2017, our office will presume
that you are no longer interested and will close the file on your request.
Please note that the 20-workday statutory time limit for the bureau to
respond to the request is temporarily suspended until the above is
received. Upon receipt of clarification, the time limit will resume. The
above information can be mailed to ATTN: Regional FOIA Coordinator, 1875
Century Blvd, Suite 214, Atlanta, GA 30345 or emailed to foiar4@fws.gov.
