From: Beryl Lipton


To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

• All policies related to the employment and payment of incarcerated persons under the jurisdiction of this agency.

• The most recent report regarding currently-employed incarcerated persons under the jurisdiction of this agency. Please include all available segregable information, including the type of employment, the wage at which the employment occurs, and any other applicable information. Please do not include any personally identifying information.

• All reports regarding post-incarceration employment for individuals formally under the jurisdiction of this agency.

If no such reports exist and if reports with equivalent information also do not exist, confirmation of the fact that no data at all exists on this subject will suffice.

Please feel free to call the MuckRock office for further clarification: 617-299-1832.

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 15 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Beryl Lipton

However, pursuant to 14-2-10 of the IPRA if the Department determines that your request is excessively burdensome or broad, you will be notified within the timeframe noted above and provide you with an estimate of how much additional time will be needed to comply with your request.

Mr. Lipton:

I have attached the link to the policy and procedure webpage (http://cd.nm.gov/policies/policies.html). On that page, please find CD100700. This policy includes the pay scale for the employment of our inmates. If you wish the wage reports of the current inmates, they are not in one central location and I will have to request them from the individual facilities, which will take an additional two weeks.

With regard to the post-incarceration employed inmates, the Department does not keep spreadsheets concerning this, therefore, there are no additional documents.

Please advise if you wish the sheets of the currently employed inmates from the various facilities.
