HI DPS contracts/MOUs re: Otter Creek Correctional Center

Beryl Lipton filed this request with the Hawaii Department of Public Safety of Hawaii.

It is a clone of this request.

Status
Completed

Communications

From: Beryl Lipton

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to Hawaii's Uniform Information Practices Code, I hereby request the following records:

All contracts (and their amendments) and memorandums of understanding entered into by the Hawaii Department of Public Safety for services and activities related to the Otter Creek Correctional Center (https://www.cca.com/facilities/otter-creek-correctional-center)

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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 10 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Beryl C.D. Lipton

From: Department of Public Safety

We do not currently have a contract to house inmates at Otter Creek. Are
you asking for the contract that ended a few years ago?

Hello Ms. Schwartz,

Yes, the contract that ended most recently would be helpful. Would it also be possible to get any documentation related to the termination of the contract? Is that something for which I should submit a separate request?

Thank you so much for your help!
Beryl

Also, as to your second question. It wasn't a termination but rather the
contract was not extended due to moving the females housed there back to
Hawaii.
