From: Runa A. Sandvik

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request all briefs, emails, records, and any other documents on, about, mentioning, or concerning the creation of the "TSA Randomizer" iOS app.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. I am a published independent reporter and a current contributor to Forbes (http://www.forbes.com/sites/runasandvik/). I have also had my journalism published on domestic and international blogs.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Runa A. Sandvik

Good morning,

Case number: 2015-TSFO-00001

Your request has been received in this office for processing. Due to the increase in number of requests received by this office, we may encounter some delay in processing your request. It is the TSA’s practice to assign requests to one of the two tracks based on the complexity of the request. Requests within the tracks are processed in the order in which they are received. Your request has been assigned to the simple track. At this time we anticipate an additional six months for simple and one year for complex to complete the processing of your request, based on processing time of similar requests. This message contains all of the information we are able to communicate to you at this time in the process. If you would like to contact us to narrow the scope of your request, please contact this office at (571) 227-2300 or foia@tsa.dhs.gov<mailto:foia@tsa.dhs.gov>.
