Good morning,

Your FOIA request has been received in the office for processing and assigned case number 2014-TSFO-00245. Our office has received a high volume of requests which has resulted in a backlog. It is TSA’s practice to assign requests into one of two tracks based on the complexity of the request and to process cases within the two tracks on a first-in, first-out basis. Your request has been assigned to the complex track. At this time we anticipate an additional eleven months if complex track to complete the processing of your request. If you are interested in narrowing the scope of your request to reduce the processing time, we are available to discuss this with you, either by email to this address or by telephone at 1-866-364-2872. Thank you for your patience in this matter.

Gerri,

I'm wondering why you're estimating 11 months to provide a list of database fields. This is not a complex request.
