Ms. Tomasiak,

Do you think I can expect a response in 2017?

Thank you,
William Green

From: Tomasiak, Lisa (OIP)

Dear Mr. Green,

At this time, it is difficult for us to provide an estimated date of completion since we do not know what the possible universe of records may be. Once we are provided with these records, we will be able to respond with a more precise estimate regarding the completion of your FOIA requests.

We are hoping to receive these records soon, and we will provide you with an update once we do.

Thank you very much for your continued patience. Please let me know if you have any additional questions in the meantime.

Kind regards,
Lisa
