To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
A copy of the Interagency Registry contributed to by members of the Intelligence Community in (and possibly after) 1975. According to FBI documents, "the purpose of this interagency registry is to have available in one location all information in abstract form that members of the Intelligence Community have provided the SSC."
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.

Dear Ms. Best,
This is in response to your May 29, 2019 Freedom of Information Act Request
to the National Archives (RD# 61606) concerning "a copy of the Interagency
Registry contributed to by members of the Intelligence Community in (and
possibly after) 1975." Your request was received by our office on May 31,
We conducted a review of the National Archives Catalog for "intelligence
registry," but none of the results appear to be relevant. Furthermore, the
National Archives does not hold records of the Special Security Center. We
recommend that you contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation for more
You asked for a waiver of the fees normally charged for providing
researchers with copies of archival records. The fee and fee waiver
provisions of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), however, do not apply
to archival records. The FOIA fee section states that "Nothing in this
subparagraph shall supersede fees chargeable under a statute specifically
providing for setting the level of fees for particular types of records."
[5 U.S.C. 552(a)(4)(vi)]. Accordingly, the NARA fee statute, 44 U.S.C.
2116(c), and implementing regulations at 36 C.F.R. Part 1258,, apply
exclusively to your request, under which the National Archives does not
waive reproduction charges for individual requesters. Our inability to
grant you the requested fee waiver does not constitute a denial for the
purposes of the FOIA. Since we have not offered an invoice for records,
this is not applicable.
We do not consider this a denial of your request. However, if you are not
satisfied with our action on this request, your options for appeal and
dispute resolution are outlined in the attached enclosure.
