Yeah, that's something Peter and I talked about earlier. So the question
is, where are these CMS records? If they don't have a review location
for them, that should be a problem.

Section 9 of the OPEN Government Act, it is important for agencies to
ensure that their searches for records in response to FOIA requests
include any potentially responsive agency records that may be in the
possession of an entity under contract with the agency for purposes of
records management. Any agency employing such a government contractor to
manage or store its records must institute appropriate procedures to
allow it to search for and identify agency records that may be
responsive to a FOIA request that are in the possession of that records
management-contractor. Given that the clear intent of this provision is
to clarify that the location of the agency records in the hands of the
contractor for records management purposes does not remove the records
from the scope of the FOIA, such records must be capable of being
searched in response to FOIA requests. If responsive agency records are
located in the possession of the records management-contractor, they
should be forwarded to the appropriate FOIA office within the agency for
processing. Such records must be identified and handled by the agency
just as if they had been in the possession of the agency in the first
instance.

It's a real live person. I don't have any problem with that. I don't
have a scheduled time to speak with them, however, so what we'll do is,
I'll call you and get you on the line and then I'll call the
"component." Does that sound good?

Is the component a sentient biological being, an artificial
intelligence, or a binary chip?

 

Can I get in on that discussion?

Here's the score, the crack CMS FOIA team has passed our request along
to the "component" responsible for retrieving data. We have not received
any indication that they will not fullfill out request. I have been told
that by tomorrow the "component" will be able to discuss our request.
