Dear Mr. Peck:

This is an interim response to your attached December 15, 2015 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for records concerning the "[c]ount of final/accepted 'Report of Findings' of type 'Executive Travel Support Reports' as prepared by or on behalf of the Counterintelligence (CI) Directorate within the Pentagon Force Protection Agency." Your request was received in this office on December 15, 2015 and assigned FOIA case number 16-F-0319. We ask that you use that number when referring to your request.

In your FOIA request, you inquired about a fee waiver. Decisions to waive or reduce fees are made on a case-by-case basis and we will make a determination in regards to your fee waiver request at the conclusion of the search and assessment of responsive records, should they exist. However, we do thank you for stating your willingness to pay $25.00 for the processing of this FOIA request. For fee purposes, we determined that you should be placed in the "Other" fee category for the processing of your FOIA request which affords you two hours of search time and 100 pages of duplication free of charge should we deny your request for a fee waiver.

You should also know that although we have already begun processing your FOIA request, we are unable to respond to your request within the FOIA's 20 day statutory time period, as there are unusual circumstances which affect our ability to process your request quickly. These unusual circumstances are: (a) the need to search for and collect records from a facility geographically separated from this Office; (b) the potential volume of records responsive to your request; and (c) the need for consultation with one or more other agencies or DoD components having a substantial interest in either the determination or the subject matter of the records. For these reasons, your request has been placed in our complex processing queue and will be worked in the order the request was received. Our current administrative workload is 1,573 open requests. We regret the anticipated delay in responding to your request and we appreciate your patience.

If you have any additional questions, please contact the Action Officer assigned to your request Patrice E. Parker at patrice.e.parker.civ@mail.mil or (571) 372-0468.

If you are not satisfied with this action, you may petition the Appellate Authority, the Director of Administration, Office of the Secretary of Defense, by writing directly to the Freedom of Information Division, ATTN: Appeals Office, 1155 Defense Pentagon, Washington, D.C. 20301-1155; you may also submit your appeal electronically at the following link: http://pal.whs.mil/palMain.aspx. Your appeal should be postmarked within 60 calendar days of the date of this mail, should cite case number 16-F-0319, and should be clearly marked "Freedom of Information Act Appeal."

Dear Mr. Peck:

This is the final response to your attached December 15, 2015, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for records concerning the "[c]ount of final/accepted 'Report of Findings' of type 'Executive Travel Support Reports' as prepared by or on behalf of the Counterintelligence (CI) Directorate within the Pentagon Force Protection Agency." Your request was received in this office on December 15, 2015, and assigned FOIA case number 16-F-0319. We ask that you use that number when referring to your request.

The Pentagon Force Protection Agency, (PFPA), a component of the Office of the Secretary of Defense, conducted a search of their records systems based on the information provided in your request. After thorough searches of the electronic records and files of PFPA, no documents of the kind you described could be identified. We believe that these search methods were appropriate and could reasonably be expected to produce the requested records if they existed.

This closes your request in our FOIA Office. If you are not satisfied with this action, you have the right to appeal to the appellate authority, the Director for Oversight and Compliance, Office of the Secretary of Defense, by writing directly to the Director of Oversight and Compliance, 9010 Defense Pentagon, Washington, DC 20301-9010. Your appeal must be postmarked within 60 calendar days of the date of this response. Alternately, you may submit your appeal electronically within 60 calendar days of the date of this response at the following link: http://pal.whs.mil/palMain.aspx. Your appeal should cite case number 16-F-319 and be clearly marked "Freedom of Information Act Appeal."
