From: Office Of Science And Technology Policy, The White House

Dear Syed,

Thank you for following up on your request. Please note that OSTP operates under the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. § 552, which is a Federal freedom of information law, not D.C. FOIA.

Pursuant to regulation, OSTP uses multi-track processing in responding to FOIA requests. The requests in each track are processed on a first-in, first-out basis. There were other requests that were received prior to the instant one. Those requests are still being processed. Thus, the estimated completion timeframe for this request is 3 to 6 weeks.

Regards,

OSTP FOIA Team.
