Dear Dr. Fukino…
1.) I request an electronic copy of the invoice and receipt for the fee(s) charged to and paid by President Barack Obama, or anyone claiming to represent him, for amendments made to his vital records…
The OIP acknowledged existence of this request in an e-mail response to Terri regarding the suitability of the request:

…Yes, you may ask for a copy of the invoice and receipt. If the agency has the documents in electronic form, or can easily convert the documents into an electronic form, then they may send it to you electronically. If no amendments were made, there would not be any such documents and the agency should inform you of that fact.
Sincerely, Linden H. Joesting
