From: Ben Goehring

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Louisiana Public Records Law, I hereby request the following records:

Monthly electronic listings of all employees of the Louisiana Executive Branch from January 1, 2019 to the present. Specifically, I am seeking electronic listings of all individuals employed within the offices of the Governor and Lieutenant Governor and all state agencies, commissions, and departments for each month from January 1, 2019 to May 31, 2022.

For each month, I’m seeking a spreadsheet, database, or delimited text file(s) — not paper records or a PDF created from data — with the following fields for each employee: full legal name, unique employee identification code, title, department or agency, race, gender, full-time/part-time status, location, hire date, termination date, civil service status, and gross annual salary. If you cannot produce any of these fields, please let me know and generate only the available variables.

If these data are not available at monthly intervals, please produce the datasets at the most frequent interval possible. For example, if the data is not available monthly, please produce the data at quarterly intervals.

In addition, please include any lookup tables that may be needed to interpret the data. For example, if departments are listed with codes linked to a separate table, I will be happy to join the records myself, rather than require your staff to do so.

I am comfortable working with large data sets and can receive the records in a variety of formats (.dbf, .csv, .mdb, etc).

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, 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 3 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Ben Goehring

From: Louisiana Division of Administration

Mr. Goehring:

Your June 7, 2022 public records request was received by the Division of Administration on that same date. We are conducting a search for records. Once the search is finished, the records will be reviewed for privileges and exemptions. We will contact you as soon as the review is completed, and all non-exempt records will be made available to you.

Thank you.

Mr. Goehring,

The Division of Administration received your June 7, 2022 email; however, additional clarification is required.

· For each employee, you requested their ”title”. Are you referring to their job title?

· For each employee, you requested their “location”. Are you referring to their work location? If so, please be advised that each employee’s work address is not listed on any report. The parish of the employee’s work location can be provided instead.

· For each employee, you requested their “gross annual salary”. Are you referring to their annual salary or to their gross wages?

Once we receive your clarification, we can begin processing your request.

Thank you.

Hello,

Thank you for your response.

By title I mean job title. The parish of the employee's work location would be great. If you could include both their annual salary and their gross wages, that would be great.

Thank you very much for your time and assistance.

Best,
Ben
