(a) Fees in general.
Fees collected under this part do not accrue to ODNI and shall be deposited immediately to the general account of the United States Treasury.
(b) Notification of decision.
Upon completion of all required review and the receipt of accrued fees (or promise to pay such fees), ODNI will promptly inform the requester in writing of those records or portions of records that will be released and those that will be denied.
(1) For documents to be released, ODNI will provide paper copies or documents on electronic media, if requested and available;
(2) For documents not released or partially released, ODNI shall explain the reasons for any denial and give notice of a right of administrative appeal. For partial releases, redactions will be made to ensure requesters can see the placement and general length of redactions with the applicable exemption or exemptions clearly with respect to each redaction.
