Communications

From: Chris Faraone

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, ยง10, I hereby request the following records:

The RFP, all responses and bids submitted, notification that the project would be awarded to Design Consultants Inc., documentation of how the decision was made, and the contract eventually presented to Design Consultants Inc. for the Huntington Avenue Reconstruction Project, as well as any other relevant documents pertinent to the RFP, bidding, and selection process for the roadwork.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

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 fees cannot be waived, 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 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Chris Faraone

Dear Mr. Faraone,

I am writing to follow up on your request for documents related to the award of a contract to Design Consultants Inc., for work on Huntington Avenue. I apologize for the delay. We have been looking for responsive records and will hopefully be able to provide you with an electronic copy of whatever records Public Works has in the next couple of days. When we have something, I will attempt to email you electronic documents at this email address if that is OK with you.

Dear Mr. Faraone,

I received your email today. In it you state that you have not received a response, but I believe that the Department of Public Works has responded. I sent you an email on April 25 with an attachment containing a PDF of the contract documents responsive to your request that the Public Works Department has in its possession and you emailed back to say that you had received the attachment. If you have a question about that attachment or seek to clarify what records you were requesting, please let me know. Absent that, I am not sure how to respond to your message from this morning that requests to be informed of when you can expect a response.
