To Whom It May Concern:

Thank you for your direction regarding FOIAOnline. However, the preference to submit FOIA requests outside of the FOIAOnline system remains a viable option, and, as such, we ask that processing of this request begin. Should submission via mail or fax be necessary at this point, confirmation of that point would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your help, patience, and all that you do.
