On 10/18 the SEC sent us an email with two pdfs attached: the agency’s response and the redacted record.
The response letter explained that the name of the employee who prepared the report was being withheld under FOIA Exemption 6 – personal privacy. The substance of the report was released in full. The letter also explained that since there were no fees associated with the request, my request for a fee waiver was moot.
See the Agency’s response and the record below.

We were told that the language in the email is standard for every FOIA confirmation they send out. They also told us that we could expect a response on our request within a few days.
