what does it mean by in a timely manner? thanks.

Generally speaking, it means 'don't be late in replying' or even 'hurry up!'

It is a wordy way of saying "timely" or "in good time" meaning "by the time I requested." The word "timely" means the same, but takes fewer words. I call this "bureaucrat-ese" because this sort of bloviating seems to proliferate in governmental or quasi-governmental environments.
