Hello,

In your office's most recent response to that attached request, I was instructed to obtain materials at this address: http://www.doi.gov/foialos/government-shutdown-foia.cfm. However, upon visiting that website, I was greeted with a 404 Page Not Found message. Please advise.

Thank you very much for your help.

I apologize but it appears there was a typo in the letter. The website is:
