From:

Good morning Ms. Best. I noted that your submission of a new FOIA request to the U.S. Nculear Regulatory Commission through FOIA Online contained neither your email address nor a phone number. Rather than having to communicate with you via "snail mail," I wondered if you would confirm that the email address to which I am sending this email is a good one for you (it's the one I used when I handled a prior request from you last fall, NRC-2019-000080). And, if you could also provide me a phone #, that would be helpful.

Once you confirm that this is a good email address (or feel free to provide me an alternative), I can send you our Acknowledgment Letter.

Thank you.

Good afternoon Ms. Best. Acknowledgment letter signed by Stephanie Blaney, FOIA Officer. No hard copy to follow. If you are unable to open the document, please let us know by return email (addressed either to me, or to FOIA.Resource@nrc.gov<mailto:FOIA.Resource@nrc.gov>) or call 301-415-7169.

If you are interested in receiving information from the NRC FOIA program, subscribe to our distribution list<https://service.govdelivery.com/accounts/USNRC/subscriber/new>.

I would like to clarify the scope of the records you are requesting. Our Office of Inspector General (OIG) has asked whether you intend to, or are amenable to construing your request, to reach any AUDIT REPORTS or INVESTIGATION REPORTS (as compared to all the workpapers, notes, interview transcripts, etc. that may preceded the issuance of these final documents). While I realize that you will not be incurring fees for the processing of your request, limiting your request to the reports themselves will facilitate the search and expedite processing. Please advise. I have put the tasking I did to OIG on hold until I hear from you,

Thank you.

To Whom It May Concern:
I wanted to follow up on the following request, copied below. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response.
Thanks for your help, and let me know if further clarification is needed.

From: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Office of Inspector General

Good morning Ms. Best.

The OIG has requested confirmation/clarification on your request that is seeking "Copies of records mentioning or describing audits, reviews, investigations or reports regarding the agency's cyber security, including audits or investigations regarding the state of the agency's cyber security regarding potential attacks as well as audits and investigations conducted in the wake of a suspected or actual cyber attack, hacking incident or breach. Please include materials generated between 1 January 1996 and 30 June 2016."

Based upon our understanding of the phrase "records mentioning or describing," your request covering a 10-year period is quite expansive (to the extent records still exist and can be searched through key words such as "cyber security", "cyber attack", "hacking" or "breach." Whether you intended or not, are you amenable to interpreting/narrowing your request to the audit and investigation reports in which the matters are the subject?

Please reply as soon as you can, as your request is presently on hold while we seek this clarification from you.

Thank you.

With apologies, Ms. Best. I have been attempting to reach you for a week now, trying to clarify the scope of/meaning of the above-referenced FOIA request. Because you have submitted multiple requests in a short period of time, apparently each with a different email address at which to contact you, I am uncertain whether you have received these communications. Although the first listed email address is the one that I believe corresponds to the above-referenced request (for "Copies of records mentioning or describing audits, reviews, investigations or reports regarding the agency's cyber security, including audits or investigations regarding the state of the agency's cyber security regarding potential attacks as well as audits and investigations conducted in the wake of a suspected or actual cyber attack, hacking incident or breach. Please include materials generated between 1 January 1996 and 30 June 2016."), I would appreciate if you would provide me with the requested clarification and confirm the correct email address to use.

I have had to place your request on hold until I receive that clarification.
