Mr. Welch:

The Department of Public Safety has received your August 2, 2016 request for information under the Missouri Sunshine Law. In compliance with Chapter 610 of the Missouri Revised Statutes, this email serves as the department’s initial response within three business days.

Your correspondence (attached to this email) indicates you are seeking: “Documents included in state Program Compliance Reviews for excess DOD personal property…”

Please clarify whether you are requesting the federal bi-annual program compliance reviews conducted by federal personnel or compliance reviews conducted by state employees as part of the federal program. If you are requesting the federal bi-annual program compliance reviews, the Department of Public Safety is not the custodian of records and your request should be addressed to the Defense Logistics Agency’s Law Enforcement Support Office.

Also, your letter does not indicate the time period for which you are requesting the available records. Please indicate the time frame of your request.

Please address communications to me at this email address (mike.oconnell@dps.mo.gov). Once the department has received clarification, we will promptly respond to your request.

Hello Mr. O'Connell,

To clarify my request, I am seeking the compliance reviews conducted by state employees, not federal. Would the past five years be a serviceable time frame?
