To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
I would like to obtain the full organization chart (and number of staff) for the Fraud Detection and National Security Directorate office at the USCIS from January 1, 2016 to Present Day.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, 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.

We have been asked to contact you by our program office in relation to your FOIA request. Their question is as follows:
Would you be happy with the total FDNS staffing numbers by division instead of the FDNS Organizational Charts that you requested. This information is readily available.
We look forward to your response. Thank you.

Thank you for your email. If an organization chart does not exist I am not asking you to create one - as that is not a right under FOIA. However, if a chart is already within your agencies records I would like a copy of the chart.
If there is no chart, I would like to receive the total FDNS staffing numbers.
Thank you! Happy Friday!
