Hello,
Our FOIA volume has approximately tripled, so unless a request is simple and very targeted and hence can be answered quickly, we're going through them in chronological order. If you wish to narrow the scope of your request to speed the response, you're welcome to do so.

Hello,

For your information, we assign incoming requests to one of three tracks: simple, complex, or expedited. Each request is then handled on a first-in, first-out basis in relation to other requests in the same track. Simple requests usually receive a response in less than a month, whereas complex requests necessarily take longer. Your request has been assigned to the complex track, and will be processed as soon as practicable.
