3. The following constraints limit this FOIA request:

3.1. Only the OFAC Designation/Evidentiary Package documents related to these SDGT individuals or entities are requested;
3.2. Excluding any documents containing the agency’s deliberative material or recommendations;
3.3. Excluding any documents classified Top Secret (“TS”), Sensitive Compartmented Information (“SCI”), and/or Special Access Program (“SAP”); however,
3.4. Including all of OFAC’s responsive documents that are classified below the TS, SCI and/or SAP levels; for example, any documents marked Unclassified (“U”), Sensitive But Unclassified (“SBU”), For Official Use Only (“FOUO”), Confidential (“C”), Law Enforcement Sensitive (“LES”), and/or Secret (“S”).

4. Although FOIA has always presumed that government records are open to public inspection, the FOIA Improvement Act of 2016, Pub. L. 114-185, prohibits agencies from withholding records unless (1) “disclosure is prohibited by law” or (2) “the agency reasonably foresees that disclosure would harm an interest protected by” one of FOIA’s exemptions. 5 U.S.C. § 552(a)(8)(A). Thus, in addition to FOIA favoring disclosure and requiring its exemptions to be narrowly construed, Section 552(a)(8)(A) prohibits agencies from using their discretion to broadly withhold records merely because they believe an exemption could technically apply.

5. In order to expedite OFAC’s release of the requested documents, please disclose them on an interim, rolling basis as they become available; for example, without waiting for all of the agency’s relevant systems of record to be searched, or all of its relevant records to be processed. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

6. If OFAC’s processing costs for this request exceed $350.00, please notify me in advance so that I might consider paying any additional fees for a complete and accurate set of responsive documents. The requested documents will be made available to the general public and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

7. 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,

David Scantling

Good Morning Mr. Scantling,

We have received your status update request.

Please be advised that Treasury has not fully returned to its facilities to process its classified FOIA cases as a result of the negative effects of Covid-19. Your request involves the processing of classified records. At this time we are unsure as to when we will be returning to the facility to resume processing these cases.

Please bear with us as we continue processing our unclassified cases as expeditiously as possible.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us via our FOIA Requester Service Center via email to: OFACFOIAOffice@treasury.gov<mailto:OFACFOIAOffice@treasury.gov> or telephonically at: 202-622-2500, option 3.

Dear Mr. Scantling;

Please be advised that as a result of the negative effects of Covid-19, Treasury has not returned to its facilities to process classified FOIA cases. Hopefully, as more American citizens are vaccinated we will be able to return to some semblance of normalcy and get to these cases. As you can understand, we are unable to provide you with a date when this will happen.

You are welcome to follow up with us as circumstances change.

Sincerely,

Marshall Fields

Dear Mr. Scantling;

Re: Response to Status update request

OFAC is aware that you have several FOIA requests open with our agency.

Unfortunately, Treasury still has not returned to its offices to process classified FOIA cases. We anticipate that in the near future as more of our workforce gets fully immunized we will return to some semblance of normalcy and return to processing our classified cases.

Please feel free to contact us at our FOIA Requester Service Center if you have further questions or concerns. We can be reached telephonically at 202-622-2500, option 3, or via email to: OFACFOIAOffice@treasury.gov<mailto:OFACFOIAOffice@treasury.gov>.
