Mr. Musgrave,

Thank you for your recent submissions requesting documents from OPR under the Freedom of Information Act. I am responding in this email concerning all submissions you made to OPR on January 2, 2014 and this morning, January 10, 2014. On January 2, 2014, OPR received the following requests from you:

Request for responsive documents to F14-00034, opened as OPR number F14-00021
Request for responsive documents to F13-00014, opened as OPR number F14-00024
Request for responsive documents to F09-00075, opened as OPR number F14-00025
Request for processing notes from F11-00096, opened as OPR number F14-00026

On January 9, 2014, we sent you a response to request F14-00026. For your information, under the FOIA, OPR has twenty days (excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays) to respond to your requests. Since January 1, 2014 was a holiday, OPR received these requests on January 2. Under the FOIA, it has until January 30, 2014 to respond to the requests, and additional time if the request is voluminous or requires referral or consultation with other components. We receive a large number of requests in addition to yours, and assign each request to a specific track. Your requests are still being reviewed, and will be processed as quickly as possible in the approximate order in which they are received, and according to the track to which they are assigned. E-mails requesting follow-up this soon after the request take away from our processing time. If we need clarification to process your requests, we will contact you. If you need additional information regarding the FOIA and how it is processed by Federal Agencies, please see http://www.justice.gov/oip/referenceguide.htm#time.

In your emails this morning, you submitted two new requests:

Request for responsive documents to F13-00037
Request for processing notes to F09-00075.

These requests will be opened, assigned FOIA numbers and a track, and processed in the approximate order in which they are received.

Thank you.

From: Hardy, Lyn (OPR)

Mr. Musgrave,

The responsive document to your request contained equities of another Department component and we sent it to that component for consultation. We do not have a timeframe because completion of consultation is dependent on another component. However, once consultation is completed and returned to OPR, we should be able to get you the document soon after.

Lyn.

From: Barnett, Ginae (OPR)

Mr. Musgrave:

As Ms. Hardy advised you on April 1, 2014, the document responsive to your request is currently pending consultation with another Department component. Accordingly, our response is dependent upon when we receive the consultation from that component, and we have no timeframe of when we can expect to receive a response. Once our consultation is completed and returned to OPR, we should be able to provide you with the document soon after.

Sincerely,
Ginae Barnett
