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 Microsoft and any final reports generated and delivered by Microsoft to the agency over the past 10 years. If retrieving the contracts themselves is too burdensome please provide a list of contracts. Please include any processing notes made in completing this request.

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,

Runa A. Sandvik

To the NSA/CSS Freedom of Information Act Appeal Authority,

This letter constitutes a formal appeal under the U.S. Freedom of Information and Privacy Acts (5 U.S.C. 552/552a) and the regulations promulgated thereunder.

Along with a letter dated Mar. 31, 2014, the NSA responded to my request for copies of contracts between the NSA and Microsoft by saying no responsive records were found. You had assigned the request reference number #75419A.

The NSA performed an inadequate search for records responsive to my request, which is violative of the FOIA. I hereby appeal the NSA inadequate search for records responsive to my request and request that the NSA conduct a new complete and thorough search for copies of contracts between the agency and Microsoft, as well as any final reports generated and delivered by Microsoft, over the past 10 years.

Sincerely,

Runa A. Sandvik
