To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, §10, I hereby request the following records:
Currently seeking all athletics expenditures from 2004 to the present regarding UMass Boston's and Dartmouth's athletics departments, including the total amount spent in a given year, and what the funds were spent on, including the amounts spent on student-athlete scholarships and coaching salaries, facility upgrades, sponsorship and partnering deals, and conference affiliation-related revenues and expenditures. Also searching for revenue figures generated by the athletics departments from 2004 to the present.
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 calendar days, as the statute requires.
These records are not held in the UMass President’s Office and most likely would be found at UMass Boston and UMass Dartmouth.
