To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
A copy of any documents used by the SBA's FOIA office and other public-facing offices that describe any of the following:
* How much computer storage space is allotted for posting documents.
* How much money is allotted to posting document or information publicly.
* Any budgets set aside for posting documents, including FOIA reading room-style information, online.
* Any forms for requesting increased limits or special exemptions to the above budgets and limitations.
I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.
In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
Dear Mr. Morisy:
We are in receipt of your Freedom of Information Act request and am currently searching to determine which SBA office(s) your request should be referred to for initial processing and will advise you as soon as possible.
Lisa J. Babcock
Chief, Freedom of Information/
Privacy Acts Office
In further response to your FOIA request below seeking information on the Small Business Administration's (SBA) online document posting allotments.
We have been advised that the SBA allocates up to 10GB of space for document support for SBA.gov. In addition, SBA has one full-time person that assists with document posting and other related duties who is paid $77 an hour. SBA does not use budget set-asides or forms for these activities.
We trust that this satisfies your inquiry.
Lisa J. Babcock
Chief, FOI/PA Office
