From: Beryl Lipton

Hello Ms. Gohmann,

Thank you for your message. I am interested in all contracts with CCA for activities at either of the facilities. I would also prefer to have the original bidding notice (Request for Proposal/Invitation to Negotiate) and all materials provided in response that contributed to the selection of the winning bidder; for example, if there were evaluative scores assigned to the bidders or other competitive evaluations, I would like those included as part of the "Contract Documents."

Thank you for soliciting clarification, and please reach out if I can provide further help on this end.

Best,
Beryl

Dear Beryl Lipton:

I am writing on behalf of your February 17, 2015 public records request of the Marion County Sheriff’s Office. Specifically, you requested: “all contracts with CCA for activities at either of the facilities. I would also prefer to have the original bidding notice (Request for Proposal/Invitation to Negotiate) and all materials provided in response that contributed to the selection of the winning bidder; for example, if there were evaluative scores assigned to the bidders or other competitive evaluations, I would like those included as part of the “Contract Documents.”

We have reviewed the records in MCSO’s possession and have determined that the attached documents are the only responsive documents we have. The services contract with CCS was originally bid in 1996, 14 years before the current administration took over MCSO. The agreement has been renewed since that time. I am attaching the 2007 contract and the most recent letter increasing the per diem rate pursuant to that contract. If you have any questions or require further clarification, please do not hesitate to call.

Thank you.
Sarah Riordan
