Michael Morisy filed this request with the National Security Agency of the United States of America.
Est. Completion None


From: Michael Morisy

To Whom It May Concern:

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

Any indexes, publishing schedules, and publishing contracts for NSA-published books generated or finalized between Jan. 1, 2000 and the date that this request is processed.

To help you in your search, records custodians for the Center for Digital Content would likely be able to find the responsive documents.

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.

Good Morning Mr. Morisy,

We are in receipt of your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request submitted via MuckRock.com on or about 9 Apr 2013 for "any indexes, published schedules, and publishing contracts for NSA-published books generated or finalized between Jan 1, 2000 and the date of this request". Your request was received in the NSA/CSS FOIA Office today, 10 April 2013, and has been assigned Case Number 70380

We are uncertain of the specific records you seek, nor do we have professional knowledge of the Center for Digital Content that you referenced in your request. In order for the NSA/CSS to conduct a reasonable search, it is best if you are able to:
- Define what you mean when you say "published" material; i.e. by whom, when, where, what media, etc.
- Identify a topic of the published material you are seeking, to include a subject, title and or author if it is known
- Explain the nature and rationale for suggesting the Center for Digital Content may have NSA documents.

Department of Defense (DoD) Regulation 5400.7-R states that the requester must provide a description of the desired record so that the Government is able to locate the record with a reasonable amount of effort. More detail is required for us to determine the appropriate files to search to find the material your request. In accordance with DoD regulation, processing of your request is being held in abeyance pending a response from you within 30 days of this email. If we have not heard from you within 30 days, we will assume you are no longer interested in pursuing this request, and Case Number 70380 will be administratively closed.
