HHS OIG Report Documentation (Department of Health and Human Services)

Jimmy Tobias filed this request with the Department of Health and Human Services of the United States of America.
Multi Request HHS OIG Report Documentation
Est. Completion None
No Responsive Documents


From: Jimmy Tobias

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

Any and all underlying documentation, including interview transcripts, investigative documents, memos, notes or any other underlying documentation, that relate to or otherwise informed the January 2023 HHS OIG report titled "The National Institutes of Health and EcoHealth Alliance Did Not Effectively Monitor Awards and Subawards, Resulting In Missed Opportunities To Oversee Research and Other Deficiencies". You can find a link to the report here: https://oig.hhs.gov/oas/reports/region5/52100025.asp

I am a reporter for The Guardian, The Nation and other outlets. As the matter of COVID-19's origins, and research related to coronaviruses in China, are a matter of great public interest and urgency, I seek expedited processing for this requst.

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 there are fees, 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.

Good Afternoon,

The organizational components serviced by the Office of the Secretary FOIA Requester Service Center do not routinely collect or retain the type of records in which you express interest. Rather it is suggested that you contact OIG for this request since HHS FOIA administration is decentralized and OIG has it’s own FOIA department.

You may submit your request to OIG at foia@oig.hhs.gov<mailto:foia@oig.hhs.gov>

Thank you,
