Ms. Lipton,

I wanted to confirm the contract your request refers to. To clarify, are you referring to our contract with JPay for inmate services (kiosks, video visitation, music player)?

JPay was also a bidder on a recent telephone RFP, which was awarded to Telmate. However, that bid was cancelled and a new RFP was issued that is now in the evaluation stage.

Therefore, I am assuming that you are referring to our contract with JPay for inmate services. Please clarify and I will retrieve the documents.
Thanks!
Erin

Hi Erin,

Thanks for your message! I would like the contract for inmate services, though if I could also obtain relevant materials related to the telephone RFP, that would be appreciated. I can put in a separate request for that, however, if that would be more convenient for you.

Thanks so much!
Beryl

Beryl,

Attached are the agreements we previously had with JPay and attached is the new contract that started June 1, 2015.

Regarding the inmate telephone RFP, I can only release documents regarding last year’s RFP, which was cancelled after the notice of award but before a contract was executed. Because the new RFP is still on-going, I cannot release any documents concerning it.
Thanks,

Erin

Hello Ms. Wright,

I'm wondering if I might revisit this request, given that the new contract has likely be awarded by this point. Could you please let me know?

Thanks so much!
Beryl
