Dear MuckRock Requestors:

This email responds to your automated status requests, regarding the status of Cases 77553, 76469, 76471, 77355, and 75408. These cases are still in our initial processing queue pending search for responsive material. Once the search for documents is initiated and/or complete, the responsive material is then compiled in our backlog for review. Due to the significant increase in FOIA requests, it is difficult estimate the completion date at this time. However, we do not anticipate these cases coming up for a search tasking, if applicable, for approximately 12 months.

We appreciate your patience thus far.

Mr. Kopstein,

This email pertains to your Case 77553 ONLY. Please be advised that we have nearly completed the search for responsive material, and hope to have an interim response out to you in the near future, ideally within the next few months. We appreciate your patience as we continue to manage the significant increase in FOIA requests. Given the volume of our backlog and the fluctuation of queue placement due to consults from other agencies that predate your request, it's likely the estimated completion date for your case is approximately 2-3 years.
Regards,
Cindy B
