    Broader source: Energy.gov [DOE]

    On November 24, 2015, OHA denied a FOIA Appeal filed by Alan Butler of the Electronic Privacy Information Center from a determination issued to him by the DOE Office of Information Resources. In his Appeal, Mr. Butler challenged the OIR’s finding that the DOE had no documents responsive to its request for records “interpreting or addressing the collection, retention, dissemination, or sharing of electronic communications or metadata” under Executive Order 12333. Reviewing the scope of the DOE’s search for responsive records, OHA determined that a single responsive document existed: agency procedures adopted under that Executive Order, which are publicly available. While it found that OIR should have identified these procedures as responsive to Mr. Butler’s request, OHA found that the DOE’s search for responsive documents was otherwise reasonably calculated to uncover the sought materials. Therefore, OHA denied the Appeal.
