III: Acronyms, Definitions, and Exemptions

  1. Including the following definitions of terms used in this Report:
    1. Administrative Appeal- a request to federal agency asking that it review at a higher administrative level a FOIA determination made by the agency at the initial request level.
    2. Average Number- the number obtained by dividing the sum of a group of numbers by quantity of numbers in the group. For example, 3, 7, and 14, the average number is 8.
    3. Backlog- the number of request or administrative appeals that are pending at an agency at the end of the fiscal year that are beyond the statutory time period for a response.
    4. Component- for agencies that process requests on a decentralized basis, a “component” is an entity, also, sometimes referred to as an Office, Division, Bureau, Center, or Directorate, within the agency that processes FOIA request. The FOIA now requires that agencies include in their Annual FOIA Report data for both the agency overall and for each principal component of the agency.
    5. Consultation- the procedure whereby the agency responding to a FOIA request first forwards a record to another agency or component within the same agency for its review because that other agency has an interest in the document. Once the agency in receipt of the consultation finishes its review of the record, it responds back to the agency or component within the same agency that forwarded it. That agency, in turn, will then respond to the FOIA requester.
    6. Exemption 3 Statute- a federal statute that exempts information from disclosure and which the agency relies on to withhold information under subsection (b)(3) of the FOIA.
    7. FOIA Request- a FOIA request is generally a request to a federal agency for access to records concerning another person (i.e., “third party” request), or concerning and organization, or particular topic of interest. FOIA request also include request made by requesters seeking records concerning themselves (i.e., “first party” request) when those requesters are not subject to the Privacy Act, such as non-U.S. citizens. Moreover, because all first-party requesters should be afforded the benefit of both the access provisions of the FOIA as well as those of the Privacy Act, FOIA request also include any first-party requests where an agency determines that it must search beyond its Privacy Act “system of records” or where Privacy Act exemption applies, and the agency looks to FOIA to afford the greatest possible access. All requests which require the agency to utilize the FOIA in responding to the requester are included in this Report. Additionally, a FOIA request includes records referred to the agency for processing and direct response to the requester. It does not, however, include records for which the agency has received a consultation from another agency. (Consultations are reported separately in Section XII of this report.)
    8. Full Grant – any agency decision to disclose all records in full in response to a FOIA request.
    9. Full Denial – any agency decision not to release any records in response to a FOIA request because the records are exempt in their entireties under one or more of the FOIA exemptions, or because of a procedural reason, such as when no records could be located.
    10. Median Number – the middle, not average, number. For example, of 3, 7, and 14, the median number is 7.
    11. Multi-Track Processing – a system in which simple requests requiring relatively minimal review are placed in one processing track and more voluminous and complex requests are placed in one or more other tracks. Requests granted expedited processing are placed in yet another track. Requests in each track are processed on a first in/first out basis.
      1. Expedited Processing – any agency will process a FOIA request on an expedited basis when a requester Satisfies the requirements for expedited processing as Set forth in the statute and in agency regulations.
      2. Simple Request – a FOIA request that an agency using multi-track processing places in its fastest (non- expedited) track based on the low volume and/or simplicity of the records requested.
      3. Complex Request – a FOIA request that an agency Using multi-track processing places in a slower track based on the high volume and/or complexity of the records requested.
    12. Partial Granted/Partial Denial – in response to a FOIA request, an agency decision to disclose portions of the records and to withhold other portions that are exempt under the FOIA, or to otherwise deny a portion of the request for a procedural reason.
    13. Pending Request or Pending Administrative Appeal – a request or administrative appeal for which an agency has not taken final action in all respects.
    14. Perfected Request – a request for records which reasonably describes such records and is made in accordance with published rules stating the time, place, fees (if any) and procedures to be followed.
    15. Processed Request or Processed Administrative Appeal – a request or administrative appeal for which an agency has taken final action in all respects.
