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

In order to keep the scope of this request within reasonable limits, it EXCLUDES email, recordings/audiovisual material, and intraoffice communications.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

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 filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

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.

John Stanton

Mr. Stanton,
This is an interim response to your January 6, 2013, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for records relating to the UCC Voice Programs from 2010 to present. We received your request on January 7, 2013, and assigned it case number 13-F-0309. We ask that you use that number when referring to your request.

This Office processes requests on a first-in, first-out, basis. In that regard, we already have initiated a search for the type of records described in your request. This Office, however, is unable at this writing to make a release determination on your request within the twenty-day statutory time period, since there are unusual circumstances which impact our ability to quickly process your request. These unusual circumstances are: (a) the need to search for and collect records from a facility geographically separated from this Office; (b) the potential volume of records responsive to your request; and (c) the need for consultation with one or more other agencies or DoD components having a substantial interest in either the determination or the subject matter of the records. For these reasons, your request has been placed in our complex processing queue and will be worked in the order the request was received. As a matter of information, our current administrative workload is approximately 1,400 open requests. I apologize for the anticipated delay in responding to your request.

If you would like to discuss how to modify your request in order to speed the processing time, we would be pleased to discuss this with you. I am the action officer assigned to your request and I may be reached through the information set out below.

You may not be aware that we maintain a website and electronic reading room at: http://www.dod.mil/pubs/foi/.
