For a detailed breakdown of each component's response times, see Section VII of this report, Compliance With Time Limits/Status of Pending Requests, on page 16.


C. Brief Description Why Requests are Not Granted.

The most frequent reason why requests are not granted is that no record responsive to the request is 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 privileges.
