From: National Telecommunications and Information Administration

Good afternoon Mr. Tobias,
This letter acknowledges your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) referred to us by the NTIA FOIA Office and received December 19, 2019 and clarification received in our office January 10, 2020. Your request has been logged in under control number 2020-00305. Please use this control number in all subsequent correspondence concerning your request.

In your letter you’ve requested the following:

"Any and all written or electronic communications, including attachments, sent or received by members of the Leveraging Federal Assets For Broadband Working Group that contain one or more of the following words or phrases: "national park", "NPS", "national parks", "national forest", "national forests", and/or "wilderness". This request seeks documents produced between March 7, 2018 and the date this request is processed. "

We have received your fee waiver request and it will be processed accordingly. In the interim, we have classified you as an “other” requester. As such, we may charge you for some of our search and duplication costs, but we will not charge you for our revi​ew costs; you are also entitled to up to 2 hours of search time and 100 pages of photocopies (or an equivalent volume) for free. See 43 C.F.R. § 2.39. If, after taking into consideration your fee category entitlements, our processing costs are less than $50.00, we will not bill you because the cost of collection would be greater than the fee collected. See 43 C.F.R. § 2.49(a)(1).

We use Multitrack Processing to process FOIA requests. The Simple track is for requests that can be processed in one to five workdays. The Normal track is for requests that can be processed in six to twenty workdays. The Complex track is for requests that can be processed in twenty-one to sixty workdays. The Exceptional/Voluminous track is for requests requiring more than sixty workdays for processing. The Expedited track is for requests that have been granted expedited processing. Within each track, requests are usually processed on a first-in, first-out basis.

This request falls into the Normal track.

Even though we normally process requests on a first-in, first-out basis, because of the nature of your request and the circumstances surrounding this request, we will prioritize and process your request as the records become available.

If you have any questions, please contact us at BLM_WO_FOIA@blm.gov<mailto:BLM_WO_FOIA@blm.gov> or 202-912-7650. Thank you for your interest in public lands and in programs and activities of the BLM.
