Dear Mr. Seibert:

Thank you for submitting your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to
the National Archives and Records Administration, via the *FOIAOnline*
website. We received your request on October 15, 2018.

This office handles FOIA and Privacy Act requests for the National Archives
and Records Administration's *operational* records (records created by this
agency). Because your *FOIAOnline* request is for *archival* records
(records that were created by or originated in a different agency but that
have been transferred to the legal custody of NARA), we have forwarded it
to our *Office of Research Services, Special Access and FOIA* staff who
handle FOIA requests for archival records.

Since the *Office of Research Services, Special Access and FOIA* does not
process FOIA requests through *FOIAOnline*, your request has been removed
from the *FOIAOnline* website, and you will be assigned a new tracking
number by that office within the next 20 business days. If you would like
to follow up with that office directly, please contact them at the address
below, or electronically via email.
