Hi Arleen,

Thank you again for following up with me and providing me with a fee estimate. As a reporter working on a story about the GenCyber camps, my budget is pretty tight. Would sending the copies electronically rather than physically help cut down on costs? For reference, I have received comparable documents (university contracts with the NSF, camp agendas, and activity schedules) from other universities (specifically the University of Florida, and Virginia Tech) free of charge. If possible, I would love to set up a time to speak with someone in your office about my request. I can be reached at 908-458-2734. Thank you for your help!

Best,

Our budgets are very tight also. The cost is the same whether they are hard copies or electronic.
