I have received and reviewed your request dated March 9, 2020. Such record would not be an Office of the Director record. However, if any responsive documents do exist, I am not the custodian of those records. Therefore, I am directing you back to the website (https://doc.mo.gov/media-center/sunshine-law) to determine from which division you should request the documents.
