From: Carolyn Komatsoulis

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Colorado Public Records Law, I hereby request the following records:

- A copy of any and all contracts (including associated amendments and exhibits) awarded to Pepsi, Coca-Cola, or any subdivision thereof, for the provision of beverages or other goods in any facilities under the purview of this organization, including all activities and buildings associated with athletics, sports, dining services, or otherwise. If this agency does not have a contract with either of the named companies, please provide the equivalent agreement with the currently employed company.

- If the contract(s) was cancelled, any and all materials related to its cancellation.

- If the contract was cancelled, the statement from the university about cancellation.

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.

Hi Carolyn,

My apologies for the delay. I got married this weekend and was out of the office for a few days and just back in this afternoon.

The Coca-Cola Agreement has a confidentiality clause, so we are required by law to obtain their permission and any redactions before we can release the document. I am currently working with our Assistant Legal Counsel, and I hope to have an answer for you by tomorrow and/or no later than this week.

Thank you for your understanding and have a great day.


Ms. Komatsoulis,

Pursuant to your recent open records request, attached is a letter from Assistant Legal Counsel, Grant Calhoun, along with the responsive documents.

Thank you,

Melanie Nyborg

Good Morning Ms. Komatsoulis,

I sent the attached email, letter and responsive documents to you yesterday morning and am not sure why it didn't get to you? Please let me know if you have any difficulties opening the attachment and I will forward the enclosures separately.

Thank you, and have a good day!
