They need to see 'everything' in order to determine that we are actually exempting what we should (so, for example, folks don't exempt information that clearly isn't personal). They have the same restrictions as us and none of the names will be passed on to anyone. We also claimed confidentiality over all that we submitted so that under FOIA, there is also a section 41 ground for non-disclosure.
Trying to pull it all together today for Jonathan....
