NTSB and NGA edited my request content and cancelled another. Is this allowed?
Hello, Other than MuckRock I am doing requests on my own related to this project: http://muckrock.com/project/find-the-truth-about-flight-mh370-44/
I sent 3 FOIA requests to NTSB. Of them one was not even processed just “Closed”. The other 2 were merged. I sent a request to NGA (National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency) also using email. They replied to me saying I had to use a form. I sent the form and when they I received the acknowledgement I noticed the resulting request subject was a mix of the previous two (email, form). It became unreadable.
What I should put in the appeal? Should I send a complaint instead?
Did you do a Privacy Act request to the NGIA? That’s the only reason I can think of where they’d direct you to a form. Anyway, you can appeal anytime for any reason. You don’t have to explain why you are appealing, you can just make an appeal.
I just sent a FOIA not Privacy Act. It’s also happened with FBI, they replied with a form that asked also other personal data such address.
This was the form I received by NGA after I sent my request. http://docdro.id/npL8mXi
Anyone? Is the editing and merging of requests allowed?
