Mr. Nash:

Regarding your records request, responsive documents have been received by the Office of General Counsel, and these documents have been reviewed. A number of the agreements have clauses which may necessitate our notifying the company with whom we have agreements and this can take time.

I hope you can appreciate that, as a state institution – and one for whom the amount of state funding has dropped considerably in recent years and is facing a proposed budget cut right now, we do not have the staff or resources of a private law firm. Our staff handle multiple responsibilities and, as the nation’s largest university by enrollment, a very large number of public records requests.

We will respond more completely as soon as we can do so.

Thank you,
Mark Johnson
Senior Director for Media Relations & Strategic Communications
