To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records covering the time period December 1st 2013 to now.

I hereby request the following records:
1. A copy of all of contracts between the USAMRIID and any subcontractors involved in the collection, transport, processing, storage and shipping of Ebola samples
2. A list of security incidents related to the transportation, storage, tracking, and use of Ebola samples in the affected countries.

This request should be properly classified as a media request. I am a freelance investigative reporter covering covering East and Central Africa, with a particular focus on business, corruption, natural resources, land and social issues. I have a strong likelihood of publishing news articles based on information released in response to this request. I have previously been published in Le Monde Afrique, IRIN News, Sydney Morning Herald, African Arguments and others. If you have questions about my media classification, please let me know and I'm happy to address them.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filed electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not, and I would like text-searchable documents.

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.

Best regards,
Emmanuel Freudenthal
