From: Alexander Rony

Two points of clarification. I am seeking records from the Economic Research Service, not the USDA as an entire department. Also, please limit your search from January 11, 2011 to the date this request is processed.

Thank you,
Alexander Rony

Mr. Rony,

This office is in receipt of your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests for records maintained by the Agricultural Research Service (ARS) and the Economic Research Service (ERS). Because the Research, Education, and Economic (REE) FOIA Office administers the FOIA for the REE agencies, which includes ERS, your request addressed to Shelly Ver Ploeg was forwarded to this office for processing.

Thank you for providing clarification that you are only interested in receiving records maintained by ARS and ERS and for indicating the time period covered by your request. In order to search our records, we need for you to provide additional information that will help us to identify the ARS and ERS employees or staffs that would maintain the records you are seeking. In the case of emails, you will need to provide the names of the ARS and ERS employees involved.

In addition, based on the information you have provided, you are considered an "all other" requester and may be charged fees for searching for documents and duplication, minus the first 2 hours of search time and the first 100 pages. Because the records you are requesting cover a 6-year period and would involve more than 2 hours of search time, you should indicate the amount you are willing to pay in processing fees.

If you can provide a telephone number, we will be able to contact you concerning questions we have about your request.
Please send your email to stasia.hutchison@ars.usda.gov<mailto:stasia.hutchison@ars.usda.gov>, with a cc to reefoia@ars.usda.gov<mailto:reefoia@ars.usda.gov>. Once we hear back from you with the additional information requested, we will be able to process your request.

If you have any questions, please call me on 202-815-2913 or stasia.hutchison@ars.usda.gov<mailto:stasia.hutchison@ars.usda.gov>.

Sincerely,

Stasia
