From Cassie Arner to Carlton Purvis on Nov. 29, 2012:

Carlton,
What are the dates of search for the email correspondence? EOG is under contract for many services provided to Auburn Athletic events.

 
From Carlton Purvis to Auburn University Athletic Department on Dec. 7, 2012:

Cassie,

Thanks for the update. I'm only requesting e-mails produced or received one month before and after the day the specific agreement related to curfew is dated that contain the keyword "curfew."

Thanks,

Carlton

From Cassie Arner to Carlton Purvis on Jan. 15, 2013:

I don't have an estimated date of completion. Through the review of the first 1,100 emails of potential accounts to have documents relating to your request, only one pertaining has been found. There are about 9,000 more I plan to review. The contract that exists between Auburn Athletics and EOG is a general services agreement and does not have specific language to your request.

As of now, I have pulled the general contract and one email that would fulfill your request.

Hi Cassie,

So am I correct in thinking that curfew enforcement was never put in writing?

Carlton
