Good afternoon, Beryl-

This office is in receipt of your Freedom of Information Act request dated August 3, 2015. Unfortunately, your request is far too broad and I must ask that you clarify with greater specificity. Pursuant to DCMR 1-402.4, it states "a request shall reasonably describe the desired record(s). Where possible, specific information regarding names, places, events, subjects, dates, files, titles, file designation, or other identifying information shall be supplied." The District of Columbia hasn't had Commissioners since the early 1970's. I'm going to have to ask that you be a little more specific. Are you seeking those records for just that period or since that time? And for what timeframe, i.e. from this date to this date, are you requesting?

In closing, pursuant to D.C. Official Code § 2-532(c) and (d)(2), we have fifteen (15) business-days, subject to the possibility of a ten (10) business-day extension, to respond to the request as of the date of receipt of the clarifying information needed to process this request.

Thank you,

Hello Mr. Slattery,

Thank you very much for your message. I was at a loss for the office to which to properly refer, as the wording of the statute conflicts with the current structure of things. I am seeking those records as they are currently maintained today, preferably from the period from January 1, 2000 through today, though I would be interested in obtaining all possibly responsive records. I understand that that would require a lot of time, so if you might advise as to reasonable metrics of constraint, I would appreciate it.

I very much appreciate your help with this.

Have a lovely afternoon,
Beryl

Good afternoon-

Sorry I haven’t been back in touch. Been doing a bit of investigating and think that the Department of Corrections is the best place to conduct this search.

Copying their FOIA officer, Oluwasegun Obebe so that he is aware of our conversation.
