Dear Mr. Gottinger,

Last year, the Department of the Interior transitioned to FOIAonline, a secure web-based tracking and case-management system. As part of the transition, new tracking numbers were generated for many open FOIA requests. As you have an open FOIA request, please find below information regarding your request pending in the Office of the Secretary’s FOIA Unit. We hope you find this helpful in any future correspondence with the Office of the Secretary’s FOIA Unit.

If, upon review, you are no longer interested in this request, we would be happy to assist you in closing it in FOIAonline or you can withdraw the request directly in FOIAonline. Please note that unless and until you contact the Office of the Secretary’s FOIA Unit and ask for the request to be withdrawn, we will continue its processing.
