Good Afternoon Mr. Lipton,

I have received your request three different times. It was sent to me twice on May 22, 2018 and again today. I have attached our current inmate telephone service agreement (GTL), current telephone commission statements, current commissary agreement (Oasis), commissary commission statements, and our video visitation services agreement. Our agency does not charge for video visitation; THEREFORE, THERE IS NO COMMISSION REPORT. Visitors at the Cobb County Adult Detention Center are able to put money on a particular inmate's account via credit card at our GTL kiosk; however, all inmate accounts are handled in house. Because we do not use the services of a vendor for inmate banking, there is no commission statement or revenue report. Our agency does not have in-pod kiosks or tablet services, so there are no commission statements or revenue report.

I hope the information that I have provided will help. However, if you need materials and invoices for the period beginning January 1, 2015 to the present please let me know. I will return to the office on Tuesday, May 29, 2018 and can provide you a cost letter. Please email all future requests directly to me at robin.clements@cobbcounty.org<mailto:robin.clements@cobbcounty.org>.

Very Respectfully,

Robin E. Clements
