Ms. Cortes,

After reviewing your request, we noted several questions that we need to resolve prior to opening a request and forwarding you an acknowledgement letter. For example, you indicated that you wish to receive "all records... received by this office from the DEA..." The terminology you used does not purport to a reasonable description of a DEA system of records. Therefore, please clarify the subject of your request specifically indicating whether or not DEA was in receipt of any electronic orders, or if DEA initiated the preservation electronic orders of preservation. Also, please explain the relevancy of the website links you provided.

From: FOIA Request

Incorrect wording. Wording should be:

From: Drug Enforcement Administration

A letter stating that a certificate of identity, proof of death, or other privacy-related fix is required in order to continue processing the request.
