Thank you for your response. I look forward to hearing from you regarding any potential fees.

From: Framingham State University

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing to let you know of my intent to seek an extension of the existing 10 day requirement due to the extensive nature of your request. My experience during the pandemic has been that if the requester authorizes the extension and I can show evidence of the authorization that the Secretary of the Commonwealth's Office has allowed us to agree to it without them issuing a decision on a formal request.

Please let me know if you are willing to authorize a 30 day extension or if you would prefer that I seek a formal extension from the Secretary's Office.

Thank you -

Ann McDonald
