As of May 31, the FBI's FoIPA section had 15,259 requests in its backlog, with an estimated 5.4 million pages of documents to be reviewed, O'Brien reported.
Further, he said, as of May 31, there were 480 FoIA requests on appeal, with 233 pending FoIPA lawsuits covering 641 requests, which also takes time from analysts.
"It is clear, however, that only more analysts, trained to process requests, can significantly diminish the backlog, absent an unexpected decrease in new requests," O'Brien told the subcommittee."The FBI is seeking additional personnel resources through the budget process, and a request for 129 additional personnel to process FoIPA requests is now pending before the Congress.
