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 Palantir Technologies (Virginia office) and related services over the past 5 years. If retrieving the contracts themselves is too burdensome please provide a list of contracts. Palantir Technologies' Virginia office is located at 1660 International Drive, 8th Floor, McLean, VA 22102. Please search for contracts from this location. I may request contracts from other locations in subsequent, separate requests. Please note this is not a keyword search. Palantir Technologies is the contracting company.

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
