CBP-2021-004394 has been processed with the following final disposition: Records Not Reasonably Described.

Pursuant to 6 C.F.R. Part 5 § 5.3(b) of the DHS FOIA regulations, you must describe the records you are seeking with as much information as possible to ensure that our search of appropriate systems of records can find them with a reasonable amount of effort. Your FOIA request has been closed as insufficient for the following reason:

____    Your request did not include a clear and detailed description of the records being requested. Please be advised that the FOIA does not require federal agencies to answer inquiries or create records in response to a FOIA request, but rather is limited to requiring agencies to provide access to reasonably described, nonexempt records.   As you have failed to reasonably describe the records you are seeking, your request is not a perfected request, and we are unable to initiate a search for responsive records.

After conferring with the component office, we are in need of the specific contract number in order to conduct a search for records responsive to the request.

Please resubmit your FOIA request, along with the required information, by logging into your existing FOIAonline account or go to https://foiaonline.gov to create an account.
