OIA FOIA Logs FY 2010 and 2011

Jason Smathers filed this request with the Department of Homeland Security, Office of Intelligence & Analysis of the United States of America.


From: Jason Smathers

To Whom It May Concern:

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

FOIA Logs for Fiscal Years 2010 and 2011.

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.

This request was made to the Under Secretary Office of Intelligence & Analysis and was seeking FOIA logs for fiscal years 2010 and 2011 for the office of intelligence and analysis only. You responded with URLs for DHS FOIA logs. These logs do not indicate if they include requests sent directly to OIA and if so, OIA requests are not identified in any way. Furthermore, it is reasonable to assume that the OIA FOIA office trracks their own FOIA requests in a log format. It is that log which I am seeking. Please provide these records.
