In order to search emails, we need names of employees and range of dates as well as search terms.

Dear Ms. Espy:
This is in regard to our original request of 9/16/16 and supplemental request of 11/30/16. We do not know which employees are, or were, working on the PredPol Software procurement or implementation. Therefore, we request that you run a search of all employee emails from January 1, 2013 to the present with the key word PredPol.

Thank you very much for your help,
Robert Brauneis

Good afternoon,

I will check on this again but is there anyway to narrow down your request? What exactly are you hoping to discover? Searching 2500+ employee emails for 3 years will take weeks and cost a considerable amount of money. I should have an exact amount tomorrow.
