Where the request does not comply with the applicable treaty and/or where the request cannot otherwise be executed, the individual will be responsible for drafting a letter to the requesting authority explaining the reasons for rejecting the request. From time to time, the individual may be required to obtain status updates from USAOs to provide to foreign officials and to otherwise respond to telephonic and electronic inquiries from USAOs, foreign litigants, and foreign officials.
