To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, §10, I hereby request the following records:
Looking to obtain information on snow and ice removal contracts at MBTA (Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority) bus stops for the past three (3) years. Please include the following information:
1. Detailed Bid Tabulations (including hourly rates)
2. Complete Bid Packets for ALL Bidders
3. Bidders Financial Information (if submitted)
4. Promotional material for all bidders
5. Addendums to Bidders
6. Any and all communication between bidders (email, mailings, fax)
7. Any interoffice correspondence for the bid regarding recommendation or disqualification of the bidders
8. Total dollar amount spent in year of the last three years on this contract
9. Copies of complete contracts with hourly rates and pricing, if possible.
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 the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. 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.
I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.
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.
Dear Ms. Maciorowska,
