In responding to FOIA requests for operational records, NARA will charge the following fees, where applicable, unless we have given you a reduction or waiver of fees under § 1250.60.
(a) Search fees—

When the request is more complicated and must be done by a professional employee of NARA, the rate is $33 per hour (or fraction thereof)
(2) Computer searching. This is the actual cost to NARA of operating the computer and the salary of the operator. When the search is relatively straightforward and can be performed by a clerical or administrative employee, the search rate is $16 per hour (or fraction thereof). When the request is more complicated and must be done by a professional employee of NARA, the rate is $33 per hour (or fraction thereof).
(b) Review fees.
(1) Review fees are charged for time spent examining all documents that are responsive to a request to determine if any are exempt from release and to determine if NARA will release exempted records.
(2) The review fee is $33 per hour (or fraction thereof).
(3) NARA will not charge review fees for time spent resolving general legal or policy issues regarding the application of exemptions.
(c) Reproduction fees—
