From: Kaleigh Rogers

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
Any and all closing reports from the NSA Inspector General investigations of NSA employees including the words "pornography," "pornographic," and/or "porn," from the past two years.

It's not unheard of for government employees to be disciplined for viewing pornography while on the job (see:http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/jul/31/feds-accept-bordom-lack-of-work-as-excuses-for-sur/?page=all, as a recent example) and these incidents are a matter of public interest. As a reporter at Motherboard, I have often reported on the intersection of online pornography, law, and government policy. If any NSA employees have been the subject of an investigation as a result of them viewing pornography while at work, it would be of particular interest to our readers as well as in the public interest for us to report on it. Therefore, I request these records for reporting purposes.

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,
Kaleigh Rogers

Dear Ms. Rogers,

This responds to your status check regarding your FOIA Case 80737. Your case is in one of our initial processing queues pending assignment to a Case Office for further evaluation and/or document search if applicable. This means we still need to search for documents, after it's assigned to a Case Officer. Due to the significant increase in FOIA requests, it is difficult estimate the completion date at this time. However, we can estimate that your case may be assigned to a Case Officer within the next 18 months. Estimating an actual completion date for your case is also difficult, as it is entirely dependent on whether or not document are located, how many documents are found, and the complexity of any document located. The average completion date for those cases in the median range is 3-4 years. Please be advised that this estimate is subject to change.

We appreciate your patience thus far.
