To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
NO FEAR Act investigations conducted by this agency that involve alleged and possible violations of whistleblower protection laws between Jan 1., 2008 and the date that the request is processed. Please include copies of all closed investigations, whether or not violations of whistleblower protection laws were indeed found to have been violated.
I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
Thank you for your interest in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG). Attached please find DHS-OIG's acknowledgement of the above-referenced FOIA request.
We need to speak with you about your request. Please contact us to set up a convenient date/time, and provide us with a phone number where you can be reached.
Since you did not reply to the below e-mail and did not provide us with a phone number where you can be reached to discuss your request, this e-mail notifies you that OIG will effect a data dump of narrative information for your FOIA request.
This is a follow-up to the e-mail sent to you a few minutes ago. Since you did not provide us with search terms, this e-mail notifies you that OIG will use the search terms "whistleblower" and "No FEAR Act" to effect the data dump of narrative information for your FOIA request.
Apologies, I've been traveling and read the acknowledgement letter but missed the request for my phone number. A data dump in those key words sounds fine, or I can answer questions via email or by phone at 857-488-3081.
Thanks for your help.
Dear Mr. Morisy,
Thank you for your interest in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG). Attached please find DHS-OIG's final response to your FOIA request.
