To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, §10, I hereby request the following records:

The report completed by Ernst & Young in 2013 regarding paid detail.

As described by the department audit published in December 2015 (see http://static1.squarespace.com/static/5086f19ce4b0ad16ff15598d/t/56958ee0a976af028c21a1a3/1452642019336/Boston+Police+Department+-+Audit+-+Final+Report+-+Dec+2015.pdf): "Paid Detail Receivables Review [....] This report, completed by Ernst & Young in 2013, included a review of accounting, billing, collection, and aging of paid detail receivables. "

As I am submitting this request in my capacity as a journalist who covers police and law enforcement, I ask that you waive fees in the public interest. I would be happy to provide examples of my work, if this helps in your determination to waive fees.
I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Shawn Musgrave

Dear Mr Musgrave,

A search was completed by the Boston Police for documents responsive to
this request. The Boston Police Department does not have any documents
responsive to this request. We learned during the search process that the
document you seek was commissioned by the City of Boston through the City
Auditor. At no time was it presented to the Boston Police Department. I
would refer you to the City of Boston for documents that may be responsive
to this request.
