From:

Ms. Grant,

The Bexar County District Attorney's Office received your request for information regarding the Esperanza Court Program. The request seeks statistical information from 2014 to the present.

Information regarding the Esperanza Court Program prior to 2016 requires manual compilation. Due to the time involved in compiling the request, we will provide you with a cost estimate letter prior to fulfilling the request. Texas Government Code ยง 552.2615. The cost for staff labor is $15.00 per hour, and overhead is an additional 20% of the labor charge. We will require full payment before any work is done.

There is a less expensive and quicker way for you to obtain this information. You may narrow your request to a shortened time frame, from 2016 to present. Although this clarification letter is not the actual cost estimate, we will provide you a cost estimate once we have received clarification of your request.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you,
