From: Todd Feathers

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

1) A list of all VA employees currently on administrative leave. If possible, this list should include the length of time the employees have been on leave, the cause of the leave, and any salary earned while on leave.

I ask that all fees be waived as I am a journalist employed by the Lowell Sun and I intend to use the requested records to publish articles in the public interest and not for any commercial purposes.

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.

I have not yet received the records, and I still require them. Can you please provide me with an estimated date of completion? I would also like to ask that you expedite the process from here on out, since this request is now three years old.
