Multi Request FOIA - Chauvin Trial Social Media Influencer Procurement Details
Status
Rejected

Communications

From: J Ader

To Whom It May Concern:

According to a recent CBS News article, "The City [of Minneapolis] is collaborating with social media partners to share public information with cultural communities and to help dispel potential misinformation during the upcoming trials of the former officers involved in the killing of George Floyd. The goal is to “increase access to information to communities that do not typically follow mainstream news sources or City communications channels and/or who do not consume information in English. It’s also an opportunity to create more two-way communication between the City and communities. The recommendations for which social media messengers to partner with come from the City’s Neighborhood and Community Relations staff. The agreements with the social media partners have not been finalized. The City is adhering to procurement requirements for the selection and contracting processes.” (see the following news source: https://web.archive.org/web/20210227133731/https://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2021/02/26/minneapolis-to-hire-6-influencers-to-spread-city-approved-messaging-to-public-during-derek-chauvin-trial/)

Thus, pursuant to the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act, I hereby request the following records:

- All RFAs and/or RFIs relevant to these social media partnerships
- All formal and informal bids relevant to these social media partnerships
- All contracts relevant to these social media partnerships
- All agency memos, word documents, PDFs, spreadsheets, and/or slideshows (PowerPoint, Presi, etc) relevant to these social media partnerships

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

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.

Sincerely,

J Ader
