Good morning,
The Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) received your Freedom of Information (FOIA) request on Friday, March 27, 2015.
Would you let me know what specific information you are looking for? Also, I’m not clear on what you mean by status, we respond to FOIA requests within 5 business days or 12 business days, if an extension is requested.
Thank you,

From: Tom Nash

I'm looking for any list or log you maintain of all the FOIA requests you receive -- which is usually a standard practice for agencies of this size. So that would mean a description of what the request is, who asked for it, and when. Status really depends on how you keep track but hopefully it indicates whether records were released, denied or weren't found.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

We are officially requesting an extension to fulfill your FOIA request, which was originally due today. Although we have the FOIA log from January 2014 to-date, it does not currently have whether or not the records were 1) released in whole, 2) denied, 3) not found, or 4) partially released. These outcomes or "status" were part of your request below.

We will provide you the data as soon as possible within the extended deadline. Should your request change, please let me know and we will provide you an updated FOIA log without the status.
