FBI FOIA Response, John Hope Franklin

U.S. Department of Justice
Federal Bureau of Investigation
Washington, D.C 20535

May 13,2009

BRONX, NY 10462

Request No.: 1130505- 000

Dear Dr. Greenberg:

This is in reference to your Freedom of Information-Privacy Acts (FOIPA) request.

We have located approximately 605 pages which are potentially responsive to your request. Pursuant to Title 28, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Sections 16.11 and 16.49, there is a duplication fee of ten cents per page. The first 100 pages will be provided to you free of charge. Regulations require us to notify requesters when anticipated charges exceed $25, and if all of the pages are released, you will owe $50.50 in duplication fees. Please remember this is only an estimate, and if some of the pages are withheld or are not identifiable with your subject, the actual charges could be less.

You may want to consider reducing the scope of your request. This would allow you to lower your costs and hasten the receipt of your information. To streamline our operation, we divide our requests into three tracks based on the amount of material to be processed: small (1-500 pages); medium (501-2500 pages) and large (2501 or more pages), with the small track having the fastest rate of processing. To accelerate the processing of your request, you must reduce the pages to be processed to 500 pages or less. Please let us know in writing if you are interested in discussing the possibility of reducing the scope of your request or if you are willing to pay the estimated duplication cost indicated in the above paragraph. Your written response should provide a telephone number where you can be reached between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., EST. You may also fax your response to the following number: 540-868-4996, Attention: Work Processing Unit. You must include the FOIPA request number in any communication regarding this matter.

As stated previously, the cost indicated is only an estimate, therefore, no payment should be made at this time.

Sincerely yours,

David M. Hardy
Section Chief, Record/Information
Dissemination Section
Records Management Division
