Dear Jimmy 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. ยง 2.3(b)

We apologize for any inconvenience but this is our new directorate effective December 16, 2020.

Respectfully,
Barb

Mr. Tobias-
This request is being processed concurrently with FWS-2020-00506 and FWS-2020-00633. An interim response was sent for these 3 requests on July 17, 2020. In emails related to FWS-2020-00633 I stated I anticipated sending another interim response by August 7, 2020. However, due to required internal reviews, I am not sure I can meet that deadline but will have an interim sent by August 14, 2020.

Thank you,
Stacey Cummins

Mr. Tobias-
An interim response for your request was sent on August 14, 2020, which also included response to your FOIA requests FWS-2020-00506 and FWS-2020-00633. Please see attached.

I have requested subject matter expert review of the remaining documents, which should be complete within the next week. Once their review is complete, an interim response can be sent. Any documents that will be withheld under one of the FOIA exemptions will require Solicitor review, which can take up to a week. Once that review is completed, then a final response will be sent. Therefore, I anticipate sending you a final response by October 9, 2020.

Thank you,
Stacey Cummins

Hello, Jimmy-
Per our conversation, I plan to send an interim by the end of this week (October 2). Any documents that will be withheld in full or part require Solicitor review, and I cannot guarantee the time it will take for their review. Hopefully it is fairly quick so these requests can be finalized.

Thank you!
