Mr. Luke Stoddard Nathan,

We are unable to respond to your Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) request within twenty (20) business days from our last letter dated August 1, 2017 because of the difficulty in retrieving the documents requested, and the need to review the documents to determine if they are responsive to your request.

It is anticipated that those records that you have requested that are disclosable under FOIL will be provided to you on or before September 15, 2017.

Sincerely,

Were any redactions applied to these records? There are blank spaces in the proposal section of the contract ("What we will do:" followed by blank spaces), which indicates there may have been redactions. If that is the case, you need to cite them in your response letter. Please advise? Thanks.

From: Hines, Brian

Mr. Luke Stoddard Nathan,

Yes, I am sorry I was negligent in putting that in my answer to you today. Redactions have been made per section 87(2)(d) of the FOIL statute, "an agency may deny access to records, or portions thereof, which are trade secrets or are submitted to an agency by a commercial enterprise or derived from information obtained from a commercial enterprise and which if disclosed would cause substantial injury to the competitive position of the subject enterprise."

Sincerely,

Brian T. Hines

Thank you for clarifying.
