No acknowledgement letter from DEA/DOJ (request received Dec 2014)?
1 answer from Raechelle Larkin.
I was hoping to get some advice on what my next step should be with a FOIA request I sent to the DEA/DOJ last year. The original request was submitted Nov. 22, and a few weeks later, I got an email requesting an updated mailing address for them to send my acknowledgment letter to. I called to confirm that I just needed to reply to the official’s email, but now it’s been three months and I haven’t received/heard anything from the department’s FOIA unit. I sent a follow-up email and I’ve been calling the designated offices for the last few days but nobody seems to be available—and so I’m wondering if anybody who has experience with these agencies could offer some advice as to what I ought to do next?
Thank you in advance!
