FOIA - Chicago Dept. Of Innovation & Tech - CPD Purchasing Email Metadata Pt. 2

J Ader filed this request with the Chicago Department of Innovation and Technology of Chicago, IL.


From: J Ader

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Illinois Freedom of Information Act., I hereby request the following records:

All email metadata - including from/to addresses, date & time stamps, subject line names, and attachment names of e-mails sent from January 1st, 2019 to February 14th, 2019 to/from the following email address:

E-mail metadata is trivially exportable from the IT infrastructure of any modern e-mail archiving or data retention system - such as Microsoft Outlook 365, Google, Datacove, etc. - and should be deliverable in a .CSV, .XLS, or other machine readable format.

E-mail metadata does not include the contents of the specified e-mails, thus do not need individual review for redaction.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

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 5 business days, as the statute requires.
