Good Afternoon:

We believe the component (DEA) provided a sufficient initial response acknowledgment for Request 21-00500-F to you via email on June 24, 2021. However, we have communicated with the DEA FOIA Office to remind them of the requirement to provide an actual estimated date of completion to a requester upon request. In the instant case, we recommend that you reach out again to the DEA FOIA Office for an estimated date of completion for this request.

Thank you for contacting OIP.

Sincerely,
OIP Compliance

Dear OIP:
