Hello Kari,

I am attempting to provide the information that you have requested in your recent FOIA request to Ingham County. You ask for prices for any "electronic form software" which is a pretty broad request and could cover anything from Microsoft Word all the way down to developer tools that are used to make web based forms. Was it your intent to include that large of a scope? If so, please respond in the affirmative and we will continue with the request. If that was not the intent, can you provide additional terms to further narrow the scope of the request?

Thank you.

Hi Steve,

I appreciate your quick reply! Yes, I would like the scope of the request to remain as wide as I've set it. Thanks for checking in.

All best,

Ingham County uses adobe acrobat and seamless documents for on-line forms. Are you just looking for the costs of these two programs?

From: Kari Mah

Hi Steve,

Yes, for both Adobe Acrobat and Seamless Docs, I'd like a copy of the most recent PO, invoice, and contract/agreement.

Many thanks,

From: FOIA Coordinator, Ingham County
