Dear Requester,

You submitted an FOIA request to FDA for a list of job vacancies at FDA that could not be filled due to the hiring freeze. FDA does not maintain such a list of job vacancies, and the FOIA does not require agencies to create records for purposes of fulfilling an FOIA request.

You have the right to appeal this determination. By filing an appeal, you preserve your rights under FOIA and give the agency a chance to review and reconsider your request and the agency's decision.

Your appeal must be mailed within 90 days from the date of this response, to:

Ms. Catherine Teti

Deputy Agency Chief FOIA Officer

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

Office of the Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs

Room 729H

200 Independence Avenue, S.W.

Washington, DC 20201

Please clearly mark both the envelope and your letter "FDA Freedom of Information Act Appeal."
