Greetings TSA FOIA official,

The TSA's SSI Policies and Procedures Handbook (previously released under FOIA) in laying out the SSI Formal Appeal process, states that such appeals should rely on rationales based on the SSI regulations in the CFR as well as "implementing guidance published or approved by the SSI Program Chief available on iShare." In the version I'm looking at from 2017 this is in section 3.8.2. Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act I request all such implementing guidance applicable to SSI appeals that is currently in effect.

I would imagine you can limit your search to the SSI Program Office, assuming you can't just download the information from whatever iShare is yourself, but please feel free to disabuse me of this notion.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

I am willing to pay all applicable fees, however in the event fees would exceed $40, 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 assistance with this matter.
