To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Colorado Open Records Act, I hereby request the following records:
* All the information about the plan FirstNet sent to the Governor's Office in late September and your state's response to FirstNet or the First Responder Network Authority.
* Any requests by state officials for access to inspect national FirstNet contracts and MOUs with AT&T.
As background for responding to this request, FirstNet is a organization within the National Telecommunications and Information Administration established in 2012 for the sole purpose of setting up a nationwide cellular network that first responders can use. Earlier this year, FirstNet signed a deal with AT&T this year and in September submitted a plan to all 50 states for the rollout of this network. States have 90 days to either opt in to the plan (binding them to AT&T for 25 years) or develop an alternative plan of their own, with no response opting the state into the AT&T plan.
There is more information on FirstNet and the proposal process available at the following article:
As well as on FirstNet’s webiste: https://www.firstnet.gov
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 3 business days, as the statute requires.
Governor Hickenlooper's Office is in receipt of your January 9th CORA
request seeking records related to the state's FirstNet decision.
I'd like to touch base to gain some clarification regarding the scope of
your request. There will also be fees associated with your request, and I'd
like to ascertain whether you are interested in moving forward. Will you
please call me at 303-866-2760. We will hold off on processing your request
until we've spoken.
Thank you, Mark
