Dear Mr. Coady

We process FOIA requests in the order in which they are received. There are three other cases ahead of yours. To update you regarding your FOIA request, we have received a response regarding our search for responsive records. While we are still not able to provide you with an estimated completion date at this time, we will make every effort to process your request as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your patience. I have just handed off the last case in front of yours for final review. Your case is now up for review. If I recall correctly, there were many unique issues involved with these records as they pertain to patents, etc. Would you prefer the much quicker road of me asking you to amend your request to exclude certain items, or would you prefer to go through the formal denial process for those particular records/items? I’m not intentionally being vague – I don’t recall the specific records/items at this time and wanted to be sure to respond to your e-mail today.

Again, thank you for your patience.

Sincerely,

Freedom of Information Coordinator
National Institute on Drug Abuse

From: E. Coady

Thank you for your response. Please proceed with fulfilling all portions of my requests that are answerable.

If there are specific requests that you seek to deny please formally enter denials for said records.

Thank you again.
