Patrick H. O'Neil,

The assigned Department case number is F-2015-04816. You will be receiving an official acknowledgement letter shortly.

Given the considerable public interest generally in the e-mails provided by former Secretary Clinton to the Department of State, the Department plans to review the collection for public release and to make the documents available to the public by posting them on a Department website. This will make the maximum number of records available in the shortest amount of time, and will be considerably more efficient than reviewing the documents piecemeal in response to subject-specific FOIA requests.

Once the collection has been posted, the Department will review your request to determine whether further action is needed.
Regards,
Katrina
FOIA Requester Service Center
