Hello Mr. Randall,

I would like to clarify that this request is for the inventory of the number of segregation units at facilities where they exist. Is there a more appropriate way to request this information?

Thanks so much,
Beryl

Hi there,

It seems as though my response to Mr. Randall on September 3, 2015 was never appropriately received. I've copied it here:

Hello Ms. Beard,

Thanks so much for your message!

Have a wonderful day,
Beryl

From: Beard, Donna

Ms. Lipton,

There are no responsive lists or inventories as requested below. The following estimate reflects the special service charge for Classification Mgmt. to run various reports (that would reflect the type(s) of confinement located at each institution) for each of our 49 institutions and review and redact confidential/exempt information from them.

1 hr./institution x 49 institutions = 49 hours
49 hours x 16.35/hr. = $801.15

This is only an estimate. You may receive subsequent estimates or a refund as necessary. If you wish to proceed with making the payment please let me know and the estimate can be provided on the Department’s official form. Following receipt of payment in the form of check or money order payable to the Department of Corrections we will begin processing your request and keeping track of time spent vs. amount paid.

Sincerely,

Donna Beard
Department of Corrections
Office of the General Counsel
