Good morning,

Your request was assigned FOIA number 2014-0036. This office is still gathering records responsive to your requests. Some portions of your request could be received as broad in scope:

"...in regards to processing requests...or otherwise mentioning or related to requests filed by the website MuckRock.com."

Some correspondence may only include phrases such as, "Please process this request from MuckRock.com." and would lead to an excess of records that may not fulfill the interest of your request. Could you please narrow or clarify these portions? Additionally, do you have a time frame for the documents?

Please respond within 30 days of the date of this email. If we do not hear back from you within that time, we will assume you are no longer interested in receiving records and your request will be administratively closed.
Regards,

Amanda C. Ackerson
