As this website is solely related to US Passports, the Passport Agency, and regulations and procedures encompassing this industry; and as an authority on the subject, I am doing a public interest story about the Department of State Hand Carry Program and government regulation of this industry.
Some of what I am looking for can be obtained by FOIA but if anyone is willing to share in order to save me time that would be great:
- LOAs, any blank Letters of Authorization showing company names and addresses – I am looking to obtain a complete set for all Passport Offices.
- Any dated DS4283s with any and all customer information redacted by either blacking or whitening it out.
Lists of registered couriers by each Passport Agency office.
- Requests you have sent to Passport Agency offices requesting to be a hand-carry courier and any correspondence you have received about being on wait lists or general availability.
- Any documented examples of favoritism towards any courier.
- AdWords Auction Insights reports from your own AdWords accounts. (ideally in monthly increments)
- top and absolute top impression rate metrics reports from your own AdWords accounts. (ideally in monthly increments)
- Any non-privileged solicitation requests or correspondence requests for your company and/or the lease or purchase of your hand-carry courier slots by any company.
- If anyone is willing to share some overall broad statistics regarding your business, I am looking at compiling and establishing industry averages: # of passports processed since October, as well as pre-pandemic, numbers cancellations, chargebacks, etc.
- Notes, transcripts, summaries or video record of the any courier meetings in Washington DC (pre-pandemic) or other annual courier meetings at any agency location.
- Any other public or non-privileged information that you wish to share regarding the Hand Carry Courier program or companies that operate in this industry.
