To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Maine Freedom of Access Act ("FOAA"), I hereby request the following records:
• Any and all policies, procedures, directives, or associated materials regarding the transportation and extradition of prisoners under the jurisdiction of this agency. If such materials exist for both the transportation of prisoners within this agency's jurisdiction and transportation of prisoners to locations outside of this agency's jurisdiction and these materials differ, provision of all would be greatly appreciated.
• Any and all contracts—as well as all associated amendments, exhibits, memorandums, directives, or other such additional materials—intergovernmental services agreements, and any other agreements regarding the transportation (of any type and length) of prisoners in the custody of this agency.
• For any transportation provided by a company, agency, or other entity that is not this agency, please provide all invoices for services, as well as any and all agreements (including supplemental elements) under which such services were provided
Further clarification can be provided upon request.
I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by 1 M.R.S.A. § 408(6). The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.
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 10 business days, as the statute requires.
Maine uses US Prisoner Transport Services when we do not do them ourselves. We do not have a contract.
