To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Louisiana Public Records Law, I hereby request the following records:

For the last five years (January 1, 2014 to the present), I am requesting the following records:

Documents sufficient to show the number of incoming grants award to GOHSEP under the Department of Homeland Security’s Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI).
Documents sufficient to outgoing grants from GOHSEP to other agencies under UASI.
Documents sufficient to describe the size of outgoing grants from GOHSEP to other agencies under UASI. Documents that describe the total dollar would be sufficient.
Documents sufficient to describe the purpose of outgoing grants from GOHSEP to other agencies under UASI.

Please be aware that this request is being made by Open the Government, a nonpartisan coalition that works to strengthen democracy by creating a more transparent and accountable government. For that reason, we request a fee waiver in processing this request. We are also asking for expedited processing of this request.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions at 202 332 6736.

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,

Freddy Martinez

Hi there

Your first City of New Orleans record request (request number #19-7163) has been submitted.
It is currently unpublished and is not available for the general public to view.

Thank you, our office has received your Public Records Law request.  Your request has been forwarded to the City department or office which is the custodian of the records you requested. The custodian will determine whether responsive records exist, and if so, compile the records for your review.

Please refer to the due date located on the individual "Request #" page for an estimate of when your records, if any, will be available.  This estimated due date may be adjusted depending on the nature of your request.

Note also that records may be in active use at this time and therefore not available for immediate review.  Additionally, in accordance with the Louisiana Public Records Law, the City of New Orleans strives to promptly release all records which contain only public information and are not otherwise exempt from the Public Records Law. The City must balance its commitment to open access with its legal obligation to review public records for such exceptions and exemptions prior to release. 

As soon as the custodian notifies our office that the records have been compiled and are available for review, we will notify you to schedule a mutually agreeable time to review or purchase copies of the records.  Thank you for your request, and we look forward to working with you to provide public records in a fair and efficient manner.

Thank you,

City of New Orleans
