Hello Ms. Beard,

Thank you for your request for clarification. I would be interested in receiving all materials regarding the transfer of Graceville from CCA to GEO custody and any that have been produced since then. I believe this date range is approximately 2004 through the present.

Thanks so much,
Beryl

Ms. Lipton,

It appears you are requesting records of procurement and operation of private facilities, specifically Graceville CF, for which the Department of Corrections has no responsive records. You would need to submit such a request to the Department of Management Services.
