* When contributing to the Annual FOIA Report for Fiscal Year 2004, ATR incorrectly calculated the number of its pending cases. The correct number was 57, rather than 56; one request had been inadvertently closed in the computer system in Fiscal Year 2004.

** When contributing to the Annual FOIA Report for Fiscal Year 2004, OPA incorrectly calculated the number of its pending cases. The correct number was 10, rather than 5.

*** In October 2004, OVW was separated from the Office of Justice Programs and began its official status as a separate component of the Department of Justice. Prior to October 2004, all FOIA requests were handled through the Office of Justice Programs and the statistics were reflected in its report.
