From: Sarah Lamdan

Hello. Sorry for the delay. I appreciate your response. It would be very helpful if you could be more specific and provide an email address for the submission of this FOIA requests. EDGI (a non-profit) has the ability to submit FOIA requests electronically to nearly every federal agency. Can you please supply an appropriate email address for this FOIA request to the State Department's Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs? Thanks you. Sarah

The information you need is on that page I sent you. Pooja

From: Sarah Lamdan

That is a generic State Department page that does not indicate any email information. So, perhaps there is no way to email a FOIA request to the State Department? Is there someone you can refer me to at the Bureau of Oceans and Int'l Envt'l & Scientific Affairs who will have more specific information? I am hoping for something more helpful and specific than the main State Department page that would only allow (it seems) submission through an online form that will not work via Muckrock. As you may know, EDGI has been using Muckrock for all its FOIA request. Thanks again.
