Dear Ms. Komatsoulis

There was an unexpected delay in the delivery of your Aug. 7, 2018, public records request – and subsequent followups – to our office. I apologize for the delay in responding.

Specifically, you asked for:

“A copy of any and all contracts (including associated amendments and exhibits) awarded to Pepsi, Coca-Cola, or any subdivision thereof, for the provision of beverages or other goods in any facilities under the purview of this organization, including all activities and buildings associated with athletics, sports, dining services, or otherwise. If this agency does not have a contract with either of the named companies, please provide the equivalent agreement with the currently employed company.

“If the contract was cancelled, any and all materials related to its cancellation.

“If the contract was cancelled, the statement from the university about cancellation.”

Please see the attached contract with Coca-Cola.

I will check to see if the University has a contract with Pepsi, but wanted to get the Coke contract to you as quickly as possible.

I would appreciate it if you would acknowledge receipt of this email so I can be sure it reached you.

Thanks very much for your patience.

Best regards, Kathleen

Dear Ms. Komatsoulis

On Sept. 17, 2018, you followed up on my response to your public records request for:

“ A copy of any and all contracts (including associated amendments and exhibits) awarded to Pepsi, Coca-Cola, or any subdivision thereof, for the provision of beverages or other goods in any facilities under the purview of this organization, including all activities and buildings associated with athletics, sports, dining services, or otherwise. If this agency does not have a contract with either of the named companies, please provide the equivalent agreement with the currently employed company.

On Aug. 30, 2018, I provided a copy of the agreement between the University and Coca-Cola and stated that I would check on whether the University has a contract with Pepsi.

I have been able to determine that the University does not have a contract with Pepsi.

I would appreciate it if you would acknowledge receipt of this message so I can be sure that it reached you.

Best regards,

Kathleen
