Hello,

Per the attached communications, the June 12, 2013 request for clarification was satisfied on July 23, 2013 and an invitation was given to solicit further clarification as needed. No further clarification was requested. As such, it would be greatly appreciated if processing of this request would continue on as expected.

Thank you very much for your help. Again, please reach out if further clarification is necessary.

From: FOIA

Greetings,

I regret to inform you that no records indicate an attempt to remedy the request. Based on the information you have recently provided, your claim of satisfying clarification on July 23, 2013 would have been invalid since the case was administratively closed July 8, 2013. If you wish to move forward in your request you will have to submit another request. This case is close and will not be re-opened; I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Please visit www.DHS.gov/FOIA<http://www.DHS.gov/FOIA> for assistance on requesting a FOIA.
