FIA-14-0030 - In the Matter of Ralph Sletager

On June 9, 2014, the Office of Hearings and Appeals (OHA) issued a decision denying in part and remanding in part an (Appeal) from a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) determination issued by the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA). The Appellant, Ralph Sletager, requested five different records.  In his Appeal, he challenged BPA’s application of Exemption 6 to a document that was released under his FOIA Request #1, and claimed that a another released document was unresponsive to another part of his FOIA Request, Request #5.  BPA explained that with regard to the Appellant’s Request #1, it realized that it made too many redactions pursuant to Exemption 6 and would like to re-release that document.  Moreover, it located another responsive document as to that same request.  Hence, OHA remanded this matter for BPA to issue a new determination as to the Appellant’s FOIA Request #1.  As to his FOIA Request #5, BPA explained that the information that the Appellant sought can be found in the regulations, and accordingly, OHA denied that part of the Appeal.
