Dear Matt Chapman,

From: Matt Chapman - Free Our Info, NFP

I would like to request that the processing of this request be handled with a little bit of extra prudential cleverness. For example, would your virus scan logs include the records responsive to my request?

That said, if there is absolutely no additional source of the records, then provide me with 30 days at the date of processing this request, whenever that may be.

From: Information Technology, Alaska

Mr. Chapman,

Please see the attached response.
