To Whom It May Concern:
THIS IS A FOIA REQUEST
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request copies of the following records:
Correspondence, reports, memos, analyses, reports, schedules of events, post-event evaluations, announcements, policy guidance, and similar or related records useful for documenting the decisions, processes, reasons, and results of: NNSA and NNSA laboratories (Sandia, Los Alamos, Livermore) to (or not to) officially recognize Pride month; NNSA and NNSA laboratories to (or not) change their social media logos to rainbow or other Pride themed displays; and NNSA and NNSA laboratories decisions to (or not) host, plan, or conduct events associated with Pride month. You may limit your search to the date range including and between January 1, 2013 to June 1, 2019.
As the FOIA requires, please release all reasonably segregable nonexempt portions of documents. If you withhold information or records then please identify the exemption through which you do so and advise me of my options for appeal under the law.
FEES AND FEE STATUS
I am a PhD student at the University of New Mexico and the information requested is for academic and public education purposes, including my PhD dissertation project, and not primarily for commercial use. Furthermore, I will make responsive records available to the public via my academic publications and presentations; on social media (I have over 13,000 Twitter followers); and through the News Site MuckRock.com. Please note that you can access my UNM student profile page at the following url: https://anthropology.unm.edu/people/grad-students/profile/martin-pfeiffer.html.
Therefore, as per Sack v. DOD (2016) I qualify for educational institution fee status and ask that you process my request accordingly. In your response please confirm that you will be processing my request under the educational institution fee status.
If fees are assessed then I agree to pay fees up to $30 without additional notice. In the event that there are fees exceeding $30 then please inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request.
RECORDS AND COMMUNICATIONS
I hereby request that all records generated by this request be delivered in electronic format via email or, if that is not possible, on CD-ROM if available.
Please do not hesitate to contact me (preferably via email) with any questions or information. You may, and I request that you do so if convenient, engage in rolling release of responsive documents.
I look forward to receiving your response within the twenty day statutory period. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation and time in this matter.
In order to accept this as a valid Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, one of the elements required, is your contact information, such as your name and address.
This request does not have your name. Please resubmit, or confirm with a reply to this email with your name.
