The USCIS in Lee's Summit, Missouri has implemented a pilot program by which FOIA requests are being answered with a CD compilation of the requested files in Adobe Acrobat format. At present the program is without charge for no-fee FOIA cases.
If you notify the USCIS on your FOIA requests in the upper right hand corner of your FOIA request, they will send all future responses via CD.
From my limited experience, the process works well. We filed a FOIA request on March 15, 2004, and today, April 19, 2004, we received a CD containing 201 pages of the file, plus a 2 page cover letter. The CD is pre-labeled, and was readily accessed by using Acrobat.
A copy of the USCIS notice explaining the program is attached.
