Dear Mr. Roberts,

As I have stated many times, my office cannot comply with your request for a status update if you do not provide your FDA control number. Therefore, we cannot respond to your fax of September 5, 2016. If you wish to receive a status update, please contact me with the control number or please contact Sam Wilde at CFSAN, since you know that she is processing your requests.

Sincerely,

That request has a tracking number of 2016-910. However, as you have discussed with Samantha Wilde, all your requests for the various years of NDIs have been combined. Ms. Wilde, as I have pointed out on numerous occasions, is the person who can provide you with status. Please contact her directly. She is copied here.

Dear Requester,

We (again) have received several faxes from you seeking status on your FOIA requests. We cannot provide you with a status update if you don't provide your control number. Please resubmit your status updates (email is fine) with your control numbers. If these fax update requests are set on some kind of auto-send, I suggest you stop them and/or amend them to include your control numbers.

Sincerely,

Hello Mr. Roberts,

I heard back from DFOI regarding the FOIA request you were checking on that never received a tracking number and they do not have any record of receiving it. You can re-submit it again to their site or you can send it to me and I can ensure that it gets over to them and a tracking number is assigned and sent to you.
Thanks,
Sam

I apologize if you're still getting requests for updates. It's an automatic feature here on MuckRock that is very helpful in most instances, but after speaking with you and Ms. Wilde, I have disabled this function, and hopefully consolidated our communications.
