Dear Mr. Winslow:

The subject FOIA request has been referred to our office for processing. You are requesting a listing of financial penalties and bonuses for the construction of the NSA Data Center in Bluffdale, Utah. In order to process your request our office need you to clarify as to whom you are requesting this information about. As you know the NSA Data Center is huge project, which involved a lot of entities. Can you please specify who you would like this information about. Clarifying your request will help our office expedite your request.

From: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

A fix is required to perfect the request. The request has been rejected as being too vague, burdensome or otherwise unprocessable.

From: Ben Winslow

"Thanks for your help perfecting this request. I request the financial penalties and bonuses assessed against any primary contractors for the construction. If this is not narrow enough, please let me know how I can further specify this information (i.e., by providing specific names of contractors).

If there are any construction progress reviews that would include summaries of penalties and bonuses assessed as part of that review, that would likely fulfill my request. If not, I would appreciate if you could give me more information about how this information is stored or organized so that I can further narrow my request in a way that is not burdensome on agency personnel.

If you do require a list of contractors in order to further narrow this request for bonuses and penalties, please provide any lists of the contractors involved in the project that are maintained, along with any other data kept in those lists (i.e., Contract award amount) so that I can further specify which ones I'm interested in.

Thanks again for your help.

Best,
Ben
