I've received FOIA related mail suspiciously late considering the date on the letter and sent a separate FOIA request to the U.S. Postal Service for information regarding meter usage, postmarks, etc. to determine if any rules were broken. Maybe the agencies want to avoid that. I wouldn't be able to get as much information out of American Express. But I'm not sure why they need big cardboard envelopes for a couple of pages.

I've always assumed that DHS - who seem to be the clear winners for sending FOIA correspondence postmarked weeks or even months after the date on the letter itself - simply had a grossly incompetent mail-handling system. Foolishly, I'd never seriously entertained the idea that they were deliberately gaming their stats.

I'm not sure whether or not it's a good thing that I assumed incompetence rather than malice on the part of DHS.
