To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the The Missouri Sunshine Law, I hereby request the following records:

Copies of Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs), Memorandums of Agreement (MOAs), Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) and other coordination, cooperation, or other resource or information sharing arrangements with federal, state or local agencies, specifically including but not limited to law enforcement agencies.

You may limit the scope of this request to documents generated between January 1, 2012 and the date of the processing of this request. If the most recent agreements (whether active or inactive) predate January 1, 2012, then I request a copy of the most recently applicable document.

I am a member of the news media and request classification as such. I have previously written about the government and its activities, with some reaching over 100,000 readers in outlets such as Gizmodo, MuckRock, Motherboard, Property of the People, Unicorn Riot, and The Outline, among others. As such, as I have a reasonable expectation of publication and my editorial and writing skills are well established. In addition, I discuss and comment on the files online and make them available through non-profits such as the library Internet Archive and the journalist non-profit MuckRock, disseminating them to a large audience. While my research is not limited to this, a great deal of it, including this, focuses on the activities and attitudes of the government itself. As such, it is not necessary for me to demonstrate the relevance of this particular subject in advance.

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 3 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Emma Best

RE: PUBLIC RECORDS REQUEST of September 22, 2020, Reference # P020274-092220
Dear Emma Best,

The Missouri State Highway Patrol received a public records request from you on September 22, 2020. You requested: “To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the The Missouri Sunshine Law, I hereby request the following records:

Copies of Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs), Memorandums of Agreement (MOAs), Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) and other coordination, cooperation, or other resource or information sharing arrangements with federal, state or local agencies, specifically including but not limited to law enforcement agencies.

Please clarify the following information: Are you able to narrow your request criteria? With the broad request you've made, this will take an extremely long time being that each department/division has multiple agreements and arrangements. There would be thousands of results and as this request is worded, the costs would be quite high.

If you would like for the Missouri State Highway Patrol to proceed with your Sunshine Law request, please provide clarifications within thirty (30) days from 09/24/2020. Otherwise, the Missouri State Highway Patrol will consider your request withdrawn.
You may provide a response to the Missouri State Highway Patrol by replying to this electronic mail.
Upon receipt of your clarification, the Missouri State Highway Patrol will further respond to your Sunshine Law Act request as required by law, including providing you with an estimate of costs associated with producing the requested records.
If you have any questions, please contact my office at 573-526-6146. Thank you for your attention.

Sincerely,
PAUL E. KENNEDY, Captain
Custodian of Records

From: Missouri Information Analysis Center
