Dear Ms. Clason,

We received your inquiry on the status of case #020120187090. The records are still being search within the OIT component here at CMS. I have resent the FOIA request electronically to OIT to remind them that the records are still needed and to alert them of the amended request. Unfortunately, I am not able to give you a time frame as to when you will receive the requested records.

If you would like to speak to the James Olin , the Division C Director, you may contact him at 410-786-3677 and perhaps the search will move forward quicker.

Thank you,
