To Whom It May Concern:

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

a copy of the list or printout or database listing of Inspector General investigations closed/reports completed during calendar year 2018. If the list is organized by FY rather than calendar year, the FY 2018 list is sufficient for this request. If no central list or database exists, then I request copies of the cover sheet or first page of each IG report completed during calendar year 2018.

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.

Sincerely,

Emma Best

Dear Ms. Best:

The Federal Housing Finance Agency Office of Inspector General (FHFA-OIG) is in receipt of your June 5, 2019 request concerning the state of the agency's cyber security and suspected or actual cyber attacks, hacking incidents, or breaches from 1/1/1996 to 6/30/2016 (2019-FOIA-00013).

We wanted to let you know that because FHFA-OIG did not come into existence until October 2010, our search will be limited to records generated on or after October 1, 2010. Also because FHFA-OIG has issued 10 reports and papers from 2015 to 2019 that pertain to FHFA's oversight of the Enterprises' management of their IT infrastructures, we intend to limit our search to any audit, review, investigation, or report records we have concerning FHFA's own cyber security from 2010 until 2016.

If you have questions or would like to discuss your request, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Dear Ms. Best:

We have commenced a preliminary review of documents that are potentially responsive to your FOIA request (2019-FOIA-00013) (i.e., any audit, review, investigation, or report records we have concerning FHFA's own cyber security from 2010 until 2016). Based on that review, it appears that upwards of 20,000 pages of material may be potentially responsive to your request, several of which are likely to require consultation with FHFA and other components within FHFA-OIG. This means that your request will be placed on the complex track behind approximately 16 other complex track request. These requests are processed in the order in which they have been received. We wanted to extend to you the option of narrowing the scope of your request. If you are able to sufficiently narrow the scope of your request, you may be able to avoid placement on the complex track. If you do not wish to modify your request, it will be placed on the complex track and reviewed in the order in which it was received. Please let us know which avenue you prefer.

Sincerely,
Colleen Kane
