           I have received your letter of 8 September this morning.  Thank you.

           In your letter you write that your office "will carefully consider your concerns as part of our audit planning process".  This is vague.  Could you please tell me what period of time I should expect to be informed of the decision regarding my letter.  Within a month?  Thank you.
