Dear Ms. Smith;
Please be advised that the information requested through the TVA FOIA will be used in a commercial venture, namely, the publication of much of it in a forthcoming book about the TVA.
I would be happy to send you a copy of the chapter headings of that book and a picture of its proposed cover. At this point it is estimated the final number of pages of the book will be between 300 and 400 pages. It readily will be available on the Internet upon publication for a sales price not yet determined.
Hopefully, this will be sufficient reason to proceed with my FOIA request concerning information from the TVA OIG’s office and to waive the proposed $1,000 fee. To speed up the process, a search of only the past five fiscal years would be sufficient to my needs so long as they coincide with the CRS certifications time frame.
Also, I would appreciate a response to the remaining items on my original Green Power Switch request stretching back to last June which deal with financial data of the GPS program.
Thanks for an early response.
