Request #19-586

Dear City FOIA Coordinator:

Pursuant to the state open records law Cal. Gov't Code Secs. 6250 to 6277, I write to request access to and a copy of the contract or contracts - including any amendments to those contracts - between the City of San Diego and the company that provides phone services to people incarcerated in the City's jails and other correctional facilities. If your agency does not maintain these public records, please let me know who does and include the proper custodian's name and address.

My preferred format is a file (such as a .pdf) emailed to I agree to pay any reasonable copying and postage fees of not more than $50. If the cost would be greater than this amount, please notify me. Please provide a receipt indicating the charges for each document.

As provided in the open records law, Sec. 6253(c), I will expect your response within ten (10) business days.

If you choose to deny this request, please provide a written explanation for the denial including a reference to the specific statutory exemption(s) upon which you rely. Also, please provide all segregable portions of otherwise exempt material.

I would note that willful violation of the open records law can result in the award of court costs and reasonable attorney fees. See Sec. 6259(d).

Thank you for your assistance.
