Re: Freedom of Information Act Request
Dear Mr. Ratzliff:
Thank you for writing to Illinois State University with your request for information pursuant to the Illinois Freedom of Information Act, 5 ILCS 140/1 et seq.
On May 15, 2019, the University received your request for the following:
[A] copy of the contract signed between the Illinois State Men’s Basketball Athletic program and the vendor who will provide services for the 2019 Illinois State Men’s Basketball tour to Italy from August 7 to August 17. If available, I am also requesting a copy of the final itinerary for the trip.
Your request is granted in part and denied in part. Enclosed is a redacted copy of the requested contract.
Signatures have been redacted from the contracts, as signatures are considered private information (5 ILCS 140/2(c-5)), exempt from disclosure pursuant to 5 ILCS 140/7(1)(b).
The University does not have “the final itinerary for the trip.”
Freedom of Information Officer
