Communications

From: Bradley Campbell

To Whom It May Concern:

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

A list of all funding proposals, including the proposals in full, made to the National Science Foundation by *media organizations in 2012. Please include all grants that were both awarded, and those rejected.

*This includes non-profit media organizations.

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,

Bradley Campbell

We are permitted to allow a reasonable amount of time for the submitters’ review. Your request is also forwarded to the submitter (any personal identifiers such as home addresses/home email addresses will be removed).

To speed the processing of your request we will only review and process for release to you the following grant documents: cover page, summary, project description, and references. If you require the entire proposal please provide this guidance directly to me by return email.

Dear Mr. Campbell:

Unfortunately, I have been in and out of the office the last couple of months due to a family health issue. This was my first full week back in the office in a while. I hope to resume work on your request next week. I have also asked for some assistance so we can get back on track. I will call you next week.

Dear Mr. Campbell:

I apologize for the delay in responding to your request. Due to limited resources (I was the only person processing requests) and a 4 month backlog when we were without a FOIA Officer and the shutdown, we got behind. However, this month we are starting our plan to get caught up and I have some additional resources. I am currently working on my oldest request from 2013 which is voluminous, but I hope to give you an estimate next week. I appreciate your patience with us thus far.
