From: Troy Carter

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to Montana's Constitution, Article II, § 9, I hereby request the following records:

All receipts and travel requests related to the $4,781 payment on Oct. 21, 2014 to Disney Resort - Caribbean.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. 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.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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 would request your response within ten (10) business days.

Sincerely,

Troy Carter

Hi Troy –

Your request finally got routed to me – the person that responses to FOIA requests. In the future, just keep my name/email handy and just send requests to me and we will be able to respond quicker.

I just wanted to let you know that I got your request and am wondering about the level of detail you want on this payment. I know you asked for “receipts and travel requests” which I can gather. I just want to be sure I understand what you are asking for. A receipt would be tied to that single exact payment. A travel request is a document that is used for employees to receive permission to travel to a particular area.

Do I have it right?

Hi Cheryl,

Thanks

Hi Troy –

I have attached a copy of the travel request for five of our IT employees who attended the annual Gartner Symposium in Orlando, Florida from October 5-9, 2014.

The receipts are for the lodging for the event. That total was $4781 for the five employees.

Disney’s Caribbean Resort is one of several hotels that Gartner reserved for the event in Orlando since over 9,000 people from around the country attend this symposium.

Let me know if you have any questions.
