Dear Mr. Tobias,

It appears you are seeking to make a FOIA request, but you sent your
request via email rather than using one of the written forms of submission
listed on the Department’s FOIA website, https://www.doi.gov/foia, or
utilizing physical or facsimile addresses of an appropriate FOIA contact,
located at https://www.doi.gov/foia/contacts. Per our regulations, your
request cannot be processed until you resubmit it utilizing one of the
written forms of submission noted above. *See **43 C.F.R. § 2.3(b)
<http://www.ecfr.gov/cgi-bin/text-idx?c=ecfr&sid=0fc3ab3499768eebc2e3691c8cf88dec&rgn=div5&view=text&node=43:1.1.1.1.2&idno=43#43:1.1.1.1.2.2.5.3>*

Hello Cindy,

Emails and email attachments should work. Thank you!

Mr. Tobias,

I am reviewing the records for request OS-2020-00253. The search has resulted in two of the suggested keywords appearing in titles.

Specifically, one is “Union” as part of an organization name. The other is “Labor Relations” in the job title of “Employee and Labor Relations.” Neither of these documents contain any of the other keywords you provided.

May I exclude either or both of these records?

If you would like to chat about the record review please call my office number (202-513-0806) between 8am-4pm. The call rolls over to my telework location.

Thank you for your consideration, Wendy Schumacher
