Dear Ms. Berg:

This is to acknowledge receipt of your email dated April 12, 2012, pertaining to all documents or memos regarding guidelines for appropriate office apparel." Our FOIA office received your Freedom of Information request on April 12, 2013.

Our policy is to process FOIA requests on a first-in, first-out basis. Consistent with this policy, every effort will be made to respond to your request as quickly as possible. The actual processing time will depend upon the complexity of the request, whether it involves sensitive or voluminous records, and whether consultations with other agencies or agency components are appropriate.

Also, you requested a waiver of processing fees. Your reason for a fee waiver does not meet the fee waiver threshold. Therefore, your request for a fee waiver has been denied. It has been determined that you are an "all other use" requester. As such, we will process your request up to the first 100 pages and the first two hours of search time at no charge. If after processing the free portion, additional information exists, you will be notified and given the opportunity to provide an agreement to pay fees for the additional information.

If you are not satisfied with this response, you may administratively appeal by writing to the Director, Office of Information Policy, United States Department of Justice, 1425 New York Avenue, NW, Suite 11050, Washington, D.C. 20530-0001. Your appeal must be received within sixty days of the date of this letter. Both the letter and envelope should be clearly marked "Freedom of Information Act Appeal."
