Good day,

This is in regards to your TSA FOIA request, 2021-TSFO-00418 (see attached). To search for records for this request, it would take a combined search time of 162 hours. We estimate costs of $4,536 for the continued processing of your request. In accordance with the DHS implementing regulations, 6 C.F.R. § 5.11, fee estimates that exceed $250 may require that the requester make an advance payment up to the amount of the entire anticipated fee before beginning to process the request. If you agree to this fee assessment, we are requesting an advance payment of fifty percent (50%) of the entire current anticipated fee which is $4,536.

Fee Estimate Breakdown:
Search time at $28 per hour (first two hours are free): $4,536
Professional review time at $28 per hour: no cost estimate at this time
Duplication is .10 per page: no charge for electronic records

This is just an estimate. The final invoice will reflect the actual time expended which could be less than the estimate. If we expect the estimate amount to increase, we will contact you directly before incurring any additional fees. We will provide you with the final invoice with our final release of records.

Under the circumstances, you may:

· Provide us with written assurance of your willingness to pay $4,536 for the processing of your request, or

· Agree in writing to pay some additional amount that is lower than our estimate of $4,536 for the processing of your request, and/or

· Reduce the scope of your request, so as to limit the amount of time that would be required to process your request, such that your fee does not exceed the amount that you have agreed to pay.

If we do not receive your fee agreement within 30 business days of the date of this email, which is June 28, 2021, we will administratively close out your requests.

If you would like help reformulating your request, please contact me directly at Michael.tobias@tsa.dhs.gov<mailto:Michael.tobias@tsa.dhs.gov>. I am also available for phone meetings.

I look forward to your response regarding your fee agreement by March 24, 2021.

Thank you and have a great day!
