Dear Mr. Nathan,
I am responding to your email, dated and received on July 6, 2017, sent to the New York State Office of Information Technology Services ("ITS"), requesting pursuant to the Freedom of Information Law (Public Officers Law, Article 6, "POL"), "any and all records pertaining to the resignation, termination, or end of employment of former Chief Information Officer Margaret Miller, including any separation or severance agreements; confidentiality or non-disclosure agreements; pay-out forms; standard worksheets; and correspondence." Furthermore, I am in receipt of your email dated and received July 11, 2017, which erroneously states that your original request was sent on June 14, 2017. Please be advised that ITS has no record of receipt of this request until July 6, 2017.
To the extent that your request describes records within the possession of ITS, and in accordance with the provisions of POL, ITS will retrieve those records that are responsive to your request and will review the same for accessibility purposes under that Law. In this regard, POL does not require an agency to prepare any record that it does not ordinarily possess or maintain. See POL § 89(3).
The process of retrieval and evaluation of records in ITS' possession that are responsive to your request is expected to take approximately twenty (20) business days. ITS will contact you by August 3, 2017, concerning the existence and accessibility of any records in its possession that are within the scope of your request.
Very truly yours,
Records Access Officer
