From: GSA FOIA

Mr. Morisy,

The GSA FOIA team is currently working your FOIA request #251007. While
pulling data we noticed that we need further clarification from you as we
proceed:

Is see in your request that you are requesting to receive a copy of all
responses sent to Congressional Committees between Jan 1, 2008 and May 6,
2013. We are gathering these responses. As clarification, are you also
interested in the reports attached to these responses as well, or only the
responses themselves? For example, we are finding that attached to these
responses are many voluminous reports. For example, GAO Publicly released
reports that can be hundreds of pages each. Would you like these reports
included in your response, or will just the responses be satisfactory?
Please respond back as soon as possible so we can prepare your request as
quickly as possible.

Thank you,
