Dear Luke Stoddard Nathan,
I write regarding your Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) request seeking:
a copy of the $400,000 contract between the agency and Industrial Economics Inc, running from 10/01/2017 to 04/30/2020 and pertaining to "Develop[ing] a Natural Resource Damages Assessment Report for Groundwater Contamination.".
In order for the Department to accurately search for the records you seek, we need you to give us more specific information describing the records.  I assume this contract is associated with a specific environmental cleanup.
You need to identify the site name, address, location, project name, contract name, or any other helpful details in order for staff to narrow their search to a feasible degree. Again, We encourage you to send your reply from your online customer DEC FOIL account in the Department's by email, which will facilitate faster processing of your request.
Please reference FOIL request W027689-100517 in all your communications with Department regarding this request.
If we do not receive your reply
within two weeks of the date of this message (by 10/19/2017), your request will be denied because, without the specific information or clarification this message seeks from you, the records are not "reasonably described" within the meaning of Public Officers Law §89(3)(a), and we will close out the request in our system.
Sincerely,
Mark Sarnacki

Hi—while I would love to provide more information about the contract, that is literally all that I am able to discern about it from the state comptroller's Open NY website. Is the vendor, time frame, and max value really not sufficient to identify it?

I can't identify it as a remediation-related contract based on the information given. I will refer it to the NYSDEC Division of Management and Budget to see if they can locate it.
