Has a government agency ever… split one request into multiple ones? I sent one request to the FBI, and I just recently received six different letters splitting the request into multiple parts.

I thought FOIA officers did the reverse typically.

Yes, this does happen, usually when a single request entails multiple subjects or corresponds to multiple offices within the original agency.

Since it is one of those exceptions that must be a pain to handle, you must remember one example?
