Re: OJP FOIA No. 17-00129

Dear Mr. Corliss-McDermott:

This is to acknowledge receipt of your Freedom of Information Act/Privacy Act request that you sent to the Department of Justice (DOJ). The DOJ Mail Referral Unit (MRU), forwarded your request, dated January 23, 2017, to the Office of Justice Programs (OJP), Office of the General Counsel, which was received in this office on that same date. A copy of your request is attached for your convenience.

The records you seek require a search in another OJP office and so your request falls within "unusual circumstances." See 5 U.S.C. ยง 552(a)(6)(B)(i)-(iii). Because of these unusual circumstances, we are extending the time limit to respond to your request beyond the ten additional days provided by the statute. We have not yet completed a search to determine whether there are records within the scope of your request. The time needed to process your request will necessarily depend on the complexity of our records search and on the volume and complexity of any records located. For your information, this Office assigns incoming requests to one of three tracks: simple, complex, or expedited. Each request is then handled on a first-in, first-out basis in relation to other requests in the same track. Simple requests usually receive a response in approximately one month, whereas complex requests necessarily take longer. At this time, your request has been assigned to the complex track. You may wish to narrow the scope of your request to limit the number of potentially responsive records or agree to an alternative time frame for processing, should records be located; or you may wish to await the completion of our records search to discuss either of these options.

Your request is assigned to Lisa Gomes, FOIA Paralegal, for processing. If you have any questions or wish to discuss reformulation or an alternative time frame for the processing of your request, you may contact Ms. Gomes by telephone at (202) 307-6235, via e-mail at Lisa.Gomes@ojp.usdoj.gov<mailto:Lisa.Gomes@ojp.usdoj.gov>, or you may write to this office at OJP, 810 7th Street, N.W., Room 5400, Washington, D.C. 20531. Please include the above-referenced OJP FOIA number. Lastly, you may contact our FOIA Public Liaison at the above telephone number to discuss any aspect of your request.

Sincerely,

FOIAOJP
