From: Heather Akers-Healy

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

Copies of contracts with Abraxas and related services over the past 5 years. If retrieving the contracts themselves is too burdensome please provide a list of contracts.

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.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

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.

Sincerely,

Heather Akers-Healy

To Whom It May Concern:

This letter is to appeal FOIA case number 75058. A search was apparently conducted in response to this request by "keyword", however Abraxas is the name of the company and not a keyword.

To clarify I am looking for contracts with Abraxas Corporation. They have previously contracted with the federal government from the following address: 205 Van Buren St Ste 310,
Herndon, VA, 20170-5336. I request that the search be performed again with this information.

Thank you,

Heather Akers-Healy
