B. Brief Description of Agency's Response-Time Ranges (On a Component-by-Component Basis).

Some components of the Department of Justice were able to respond to their FOIA/PA requests within the statutory time periods.

For a detailed breakdown of each component's response times, see Section VII of this report, Compliance With Time Limits/Status of Pending Requests.


C. Brief Description Why Requests are Not Granted.

The most frequent reason that requests are not granted is that no records responsive to the request are located.

The primary reasons for not granting requests for which records are located is that disclosure would result in an unwarranted or clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy or that the records are protected by the deliberative process or attorney work-product privilege.
