GSA agrees to waive $10,266 bill, will release info in June '14
I received a message from Travis Lewis, FOIA representative of GSA, this afternoon. He acknowledged that GSA had discussed my appeal with OGIS and that various aspects of the situation were reviewed. He also indicated that since GSA had received a similar request from a member of the media that the request would be classified as a press request and therefore I would receive the requested materials with the $10,266 in fees waived. The deadline for GSA to assemble the materials is June 18. That will be just nine days short of one year that STORIS was sold at auction. (Originally posted April 2, 2014)
