What are your thoughts on the DCAA statement in their November 29, 2013 “no documents” response that the documents that they create are not their property so they cannot release?

From Kel McClanahan, National Security Counselors (posted to the FOI-L listserv):

They violated their regs.  DOD 5400.07-R § C1.5.9.1, to be exact.  “A request received by a DoD Component having no records responsive to a request shall be referred routinely to another DoD Component, if the other DoD Component has reason to believe it has the requested record.” 

It’s not your job to identify the contract offices; it’s theirs.
