To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Mississippi Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:
For all DBMSs owned, maintained, operated, contracted with/through, or supported by the Information Technology - or similar - department(s) within your city, please provide me with the following information:
-Underlying engine (eg, postgres, mysql, mariadb, cockroachdb, Mongodb, Oracle database, sybase, MSAccess, SQL Server, VoltDB, RethinkDB, Chronos, Elasticsearch, etcd, cassandra, etc)
-Names of software that connect to each DBMS
-Names of departments that use information within the DBMS
-Schema of database (preferably, with granularity down to column names)
-Contract identifier for each database, if relevant
I understand that the information respondent to this request may require the creation of new documents - if that will be the case, then please provide me with documents that may contain the information (eg, documentation, contracts, etc). I am also happy to narrow the scope of my request if necessary.
Please also let me know if any help is needed with discovering any DBMS services. My background is in distributed systems systems administration and I can offer technical tips or advice if it would be helpful in any way.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes. As I believe the information respondent to this request outweighs the costs and burden, I would like to kindly request a fee waiver.
I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 7 business days, as the statute requires.

Good Afternoon Matt,
ITS has received your public records request for “DBMSs owned, maintained, operated, contracted with/through, or supported by the Information Technology – or similar – departments within your city”.
ITS only has information as it is related to our agency, MS Department of Information Technology Services (ITS). You will have to reach out to other State agencies for their information.
As I stated with your previous request, in accordance with the ITS Public Records Policy and Procedures, we must receive the initial fee of $70 to begin processing your customer request. Our On-Line Public Record Request Payment application is located at: https://www.ms.gov/its/public_record_request.
I’d like to remind you the initial fee of $70 is to cover the first hour of staff time to evaluate and research your request. This fee is non-refundable and will be applied toward the cost of filling your request. I will provide you a cost estimate of additional charges after I know what we are able to gather and provide to you.
Also I would like to mention that ITS has not received your initial fee on your previous request, dated July 5, 2018, for email account information. You stated on 7/16/18 that the check was on its way. Work has not begun on that request because we have not received the initial fee.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
