Dear Mr. Brown,

Thank you for your inquiry. At this time we are still waiting on a program
office to send us any potentially responsive records as we do
not retain records in the OS FOIA office. Once we have those records, we
can begin processing them. While we cannot provide you a timeline at this
point, please be assured we are working to complete your request as
promptly as we can.
Thanks,

Cindy Sweeney
