Mr. Morisy,

According to the notes in the case the estimated completion date (ECD) for this case is: December 2016.

Since 2008, the Department has experienced a 300 percent increase in the number of FOIA and Privacy Act requests it receives annually. In Fiscal Year (“FY”) 2015, the Department received nearly 25,000 FOIA and/or Privacy Act requests. To date, in FY 2016, the Department has received 8,500 FOIA and/or Privacy Act requests.

There has also been a marked increase in the number of FOIA lawsuits filed against the Department in recent years. The Department is currently engaged in over 100 FOIA litigation cases, many of which involve court-ordered document production schedules. This significant increase in the number of FOIA lawsuits is drawing on limited and already over-burdened resources and has necessitated the continued realignment of resources to meet court-imposed deadlines associated with this increase in litigation.

ECD’s are subject to change and are “strictly” estimates and not intended to be used as “actual” dates of completion, due to various extenuating factors, which are beyond the control of the Branch, which may or may not include coordination with other agencies during the process (referrals, concurrences, etc.) Interim releases are provided, as applicable.

Mr. Morisy,
This is in response to your email below regarding the status of FOIA Case Control Number F-2014-00420.

The Office of Information Programs and Services’ (IPS) electronic records system indicates that the estimated date of completion (EDC) for this request is December 2018. Please note that EDCs are subject to change and are “strictly” estimates and not intended to be used as “actual” dates of completion, due to various extenuating factors.

The Department processes FOIA and Privacy Act requests on a first-in, first-out basis, and currently has a backlog of approximately 13,000 cases. As a result, there is presently a delay in the completion of FOIA and Privacy Act requests.

If you have further concerns or any questions regarding any FOIA-related matter, please contact the FOIA Requester Service Center (FRSC) at 202-261-8484 or send an e-mail to foiastatus@state.gov<mailto:foiastatus@state.gov>.
