RE:      Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Request EPA-HQ-2018-005480
Dear Mr. Nesbitt:
This letter is in regard to your March 15th, 2018 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for the following U.S. Environmental Protection (EPA) records concerning renovations or furnishings of the offices of Senate confirmed political appointees.
Often, requesters for older requests no longer have an interest in receiving a response.  Given the passage of time since the submission of your FOIA requests and to avoid spending unnecessary time and resources responding to requests where requesters may no longer wish to receive a response, we inquire as to whether you are still interested in obtaining responses to your requests.  Records responsive to your request are continuing to be released on a monthly basis via EPA-HQ-2018-1290 at www.foiaonline.gov. (http://www.foiaonline.gov)
If you are still interested in the responsive agency records, we will make every effort to complete the requests as quickly as possible.  Please confirm within ten working days of the date of this letter, or that you still wish our office to continue processing your requests.  If we do not hear from you by Wednesday, March 6 th, 2019, we will assume that you do not desire a response to your requests and will administratively close your requests.
Please contact me via email at sandfoss.kristina@epa.gov or phone at 202-564-7177 to discuss your request.
Sincerely,
Kristina Sandfoss
