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.

A no responsive documents response.

From: Michael Morisy

Hi,

I appeal this decision. In the ICOnTheRecord blog post cited in my initial request, the following statement is made:

"In response to the recommendations of the President’s Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technologies, the White House has reviewed its policies in this area and reinvigorated an interagency process for deciding when to share vulnerabilities. This process is called the Vulnerabilities Equities Process."

Given that this is an interagency process ODNI is involved with, it is reasonable to believe that some documentation regarding ODNI's role exists. While some or most of the VEP documentation might reside under the Executive Office of the President, other documentation must exist within ODNI in order for it to coordinate its part in this interagency process.

Please search for and release such documents.

Thanks,
Michael
