RE: FDIC FOIA Request Log Nos. 14-0186 and 14-0215

Dear Mr. Smathers:

The records of the FDIC's FOIA/Privacy Act Group reflect that, by your email of January 21, 2014, you submitted a FOIA request to the FDIC for information that you described as follows:

A copy of the Fiscal Year 2009-2013 Premium Travel Reports created by your agency for submission to GSA per the Federal Travel Regulation. If you want clarification of the report I am looking for, please see this GSA website: http://www.gsa.gov/portal/category/27108

Your January 21, 2014 FOIA request was assigned FDIC FOIA Request Log No. 14-0186. The FDIC's processing of that request remains in progress. Though I cannot now advise you of a precise date by which the processing of that request will be completed, we are proceeding with due diligence. Additional information will be provided to you when it becomes available.

The records of the FDIC's FOIA/Privacy Act Group further reflect that, by your email of February 4, 2014, you submitted a FOIA request to the FDIC for information that you described as follows:

A copy of the Fiscal Year 2009-2013 Premium Travel Reports created by your agency for submission to GSA per the Federal Travel Regulation. If you want clarification of the report I am looking for, please see this GSA website: http://www.gsa.gov/portal/category/27108

Your February 4, 2014 FOIA request was assigned FDIC FOIA Request Log No. 14-0215. However, your February 4, 2014 FOIA request seeks the same information that you requested in your January 21, 2014 FOIA request. Because your February 4, 2014 FOIA request is duplicative, for reasons of sound administrative practice, it cannot be further processed. Therefore, FOIA Request File Log No. 14-0215 now is being closed. If you would like to request additional information, you may submit a new FOIA request at any time.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about this matter.

RE: FDIC FOIA Request Log No. 14-0186

Dear Mr. Smathers:

Reference is made to your January 21, 2014 FOIA request to the FDIC for information that you described as follows:

A copy of the Fiscal Year 2009-2013 Premium Travel Reports created by your agency for submission to GSA per the Federal Travel Regulation. If you want clarification of the report I am looking for, please see this GSA website: http://www.gsa.gov/portal/category/27108

The FDIC's records search has been completed, and responsive records have been located. Though I cannot now provide a precise date when the final processing of your request will be completed, we are proceeding with due diligence and hope to complete the processing of this request in the near future. Additional information will be provided to you as soon as it becomes available.

In general, the FOIA allows an agency twenty days (excepting Saturdays, Sundays, and legal public holidays) from its receipt of a request to make its determination. However, in the case of "unusual circumstances," (i.e., the need to search for and collect the records from field facilities or other establishments that are separate from the office processing your request; the need to search for, collect, and appropriately examine a voluminous amount of separate and distinct records; and/or the need to consult with another agency or with internal FDIC components, which have a substantial interest in the determination or the subject matter of your request), the FOIA provides for an enlargement, by an additional ten days, of the period within which a determination is to be made.

Because of unusual circumstances, we may be unable to make a determination with respect to your request within twenty days from the date of the FDIC's receipt of your request (i.e., by on or about February 20, 2014). I have attached a Notice of Need for Additional Time. The enlarged due date is on or about March 7, 2014. I hope that we will be able to complete the processing of this request before then.

Thank you for your continuing courtesy and patience.

Sincerely
