telephone numbers, visit our Web site at www.usdoj.gov/oip/04_4.html.


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 why 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

privileges.
