Please be sure to include attachments to any emails.
When delivering the responsive documents related to this request, please also specifically certify that no other responsive documents exist beyond those provided by your agency as part of this request.
In order to assist you in your search for the requested records, please refer to the following page on the USASpending website, which describes a contract (PIID FA864921P1569) between DoD and Newsguard Technologies, Inc. for contracted work related to "misinformation fingerprints": https://www.usaspending.gov/award/CONT_AWD_FA864921P1569_9700_-NONE-_-NONE-
Although there may be other contracts related to this request associated with U.S. Cyber Command, the contract linked above should provide you with enough information about the contractor to conduct a search of your agency's contracts.
The requested information will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes. Disclosure of the requested information to me is in the public interest because it is likely to contribute significantly to public understanding of the operations and/or activities of the government, and is not primarily in my commercial interest.
In order to help determine my status to assess fees, you should know that I am a freelance journalist whose work is published regularly by print and digital news outlets and magazines. You can view my portfolio at www.erinmariemiller.com/clips. I have previously been determined a media requester by other federal agencies in earlier FOIA requests.
As a member of the media, I request a waiver of all fees. In the event that there are fees, I am willing to pay up to $25 for the requested information. If the fee for this request exceeds this amount, please notify me in writing for permission prior to beginning work on the 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.
