Once again, you are doing the same thing we discussed yesterday via email on another matter. Please informed your staff to pay attention to their email address. The Department of the Army is Decentralized we have informed your staff voluminous times. This is not under our purview (please reference the attachment) for further guidance on whom to contact. No further action required from this office.

Very Respectfully,

Freedom of Information Act Office (FOIA) /

Chief Attorney and Legal Services (CALS)

☎Office: 703-614-5871

From: Army - United States Department of the Army


Please be advised that this office serves as the policy and oversight office for the Department of the Army Freedom of Information and Privacy Acts entities, and is not a repository for documents for the Department of the Army. Requests for information and documents under the purview of the Army are sent to the agency most likely to have responsive records for a review in accordance with Army Regulation 25-55, The Army Freedom of Information Act program.

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) only provides the means by which the public can request specific documents from the Army. The FOIA does not require Federal agencies to answer questions, render opinions, do legal research, compile or analyze data, conduct surveys, or provide subjective evaluations.

This is too broad as written, we need more information to make sure we refer your request to the right activity that might have responsive documents. Which Army activity do you think will have the documents that you're requesting?



From: Emma North-Best

Several offices, including yours. That's why I sent it to you.
