Hi, Tony—Neither option works. Sentence (b) is ungrammatical. You can speak of a form for someone to respond to, but not of a form for somebody to respond. But (a) doesn't work, either. Is the form for a pre-existing response? No. You mean to say that the form requires the person's response. And that's what I think you should indicate. I think you should also use two sentences.

  • Thank you for providing the relevant information. Please also respond to the attached request for further information (RFI_09082022).
