Communications

From: Russel Neiss

To Whom It May Concern:

A September 2, 2016 letter from Alphonso David (Counsel to the Governor) to Commissioner RoAnn M. Destito outlines guidelines designed to assist OGS in its implementation of Executive Order 157. In part, the letter suggests that "OGS is permitted to work with other states that have implemented similar policies related to international boycott activities, and with related outside groups, in order to more effectively utilize relevant publicly available information."

Pursuant to the New York Freedom of Information Law, I hereby request the following records:

Any communication between OGS and these "outside groups" related to OGS's implementation of executive order 157 , (From 9/2/2016 - 12/31/2018). This should include, but not be limited to communications between the Israel-American Coalition for Action and OGS.

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 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Russel Neiss

Dear Ms. Groll,

Thank you for your latest response dated 7/16/2019. This is now the fourth time your agency has delayed the production of these public records claiming that you are "continuing to collect and review records to ensure that the documents are responsive to your request and not exempt from disclosure." This language suggests that you have already collected some documents even as you search for others. I ask that you please release those records to me while you continue to collect and review additional responsive records in order to assist in extending public accountability and to not unnecessarily delay disclosure.

Further, if the issue delaying the release of these documents is the scope of the request, I'd be happy to narrow it to facilitate the work you all do, and to get the documents released more quickly.

Let me know how we can move forward together on this one. I'm happy to chat on the phone if that would be helpful as well.

Again, thanks so much,
Russel Neiss

Subject: RE: New York Freedom of Information Law Request #6810
Dear Ms. Groll,

Thank you for your latest response dated 7/16/2019. This is now the fourth time your agency has delayed the production of these public records claiming that you are "continuing to collect and review records to ensure that the documents are responsive to your request and not exempt from disclosure." This language suggests that you have already collected some documents even as you search for others. I ask that you please release those records to me while you continue to collect and review additional responsive records in order to assist in extending public accountability and to not unnecessarily delay disclosure.

Further, if the issue delaying the release of these documents is the scope of the request, I'd be happy to narrow it to facilitate the work you all do, and to get the documents released more quickly.

Let me know how we can move forward together on this one. I'm happy to chat on the phone if that would be helpful as well.

Again, thanks so much,
Russel Neiss

On April 15, 2019:
Subject: New York Freedom of Information Law Request: Untitled
To Whom It May Concern:

A September 2, 2016 letter from Alphonso David (Counsel to the Governor) to Commissioner RoAnn M. Destito outlines guidelines designed to assist OGS in its implementation of Executive Order 157. In part, the letter suggests that "OGS is permitted to work with other states that have implemented similar policies related to international boycott activities, and with related outside groups, in order to more effectively utilize relevant publicly available information."

Pursuant to the New York Freedom of Information Law, I hereby request the following records:

Any communication between OGS and these "outside groups" related to OGS's implementation of executive order 157 , (From 9/2/2016 - 12/31/2018). This should include, but not be limited to communications between the Israel-American Coalition for Action and OGS.

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 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Russel Neiss

To Whom It May Concern:

I'm following up on the following New York Freedom of Information Law request, copied below, and originally submitted on April 15, 2019. You had previously indicated that it would be completed on Oct. 11, 2019. I wanted to check on the status of my request, and to see if there was a new estimated completion date. You had assigned it reference number #6810.

Thanks for your help, and let me know if further clarification is needed.

Subject: RE: New York Freedom of Information Law Request #6810
Dear Ms. Groll,

Thank you for your latest response dated 7/16/2019. This is now the fourth time your agency has delayed the production of these public records claiming that you are "continuing to collect and review records to ensure that the documents are responsive to your request and not exempt from disclosure." This language suggests that you have already collected some documents even as you search for others. I ask that you please release those records to me while you continue to collect and review additional responsive records in order to assist in extending public accountability and to not unnecessarily delay disclosure.

Further, if the issue delaying the release of these documents is the scope of the request, I'd be happy to narrow it to facilitate the work you all do, and to get the documents released more quickly.

Let me know how we can move forward together on this one. I'm happy to chat on the phone if that would be helpful as well.

Again, thanks so much,
Russel Neiss

On April 15, 2019:
Subject: New York Freedom of Information Law Request: Untitled
To Whom It May Concern:

A September 2, 2016 letter from Alphonso David (Counsel to the Governor) to Commissioner RoAnn M. Destito outlines guidelines designed to assist OGS in its implementation of Executive Order 157. In part, the letter suggests that "OGS is permitted to work with other states that have implemented similar policies related to international boycott activities, and with related outside groups, in order to more effectively utilize relevant publicly available information."

Pursuant to the New York Freedom of Information Law, I hereby request the following records:

Any communication between OGS and these "outside groups" related to OGS's implementation of executive order 157 , (From 9/2/2016 - 12/31/2018). This should include, but not be limited to communications between the Israel-American Coalition for Action and OGS.

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 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Russel Neiss

Subject: RE: New York Freedom of Information Law Request #6810
Dear Ms. Groll,

Thank you for your latest response dated 7/16/2019. This is now the fourth time your agency has delayed the production of these public records claiming that you are "continuing to collect and review records to ensure that the documents are responsive to your request and not exempt from disclosure." This language suggests that you have already collected some documents even as you search for others. I ask that you please release those records to me while you continue to collect and review additional responsive records in order to assist in extending public accountability and to not unnecessarily delay disclosure.

Further, if the issue delaying the release of these documents is the scope of the request, I'd be happy to narrow it to facilitate the work you all do, and to get the documents released more quickly.

Let me know how we can move forward together on this one. I'm happy to chat on the phone if that would be helpful as well.

Again, thanks so much,
Russel Neiss

Subject: New York Freedom of Information Law Request: Untitled
To Whom It May Concern:

A September 2, 2016 letter from Alphonso David (Counsel to the Governor) to Commissioner RoAnn M. Destito outlines guidelines designed to assist OGS in its implementation of Executive Order 157. In part, the letter suggests that "OGS is permitted to work with other states that have implemented similar policies related to international boycott activities, and with related outside groups, in order to more effectively utilize relevant publicly available information."

Pursuant to the New York Freedom of Information Law, I hereby request the following records:

Any communication between OGS and these "outside groups" related to OGS's implementation of executive order 157 , (From 9/2/2016 - 12/31/2018). This should include, but not be limited to communications between the Israel-American Coalition for Action and OGS.

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 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Russel Neiss

Subject: New York Freedom of Information Law Request: Untitled
To Whom It May Concern:

A September 2, 2016 letter from Alphonso David (Counsel to the Governor) to Commissioner RoAnn M. Destito outlines guidelines designed to assist OGS in its implementation of Executive Order 157. In part, the letter suggests that "OGS is permitted to work with other states that have implemented similar policies related to international boycott activities, and with related outside groups, in order to more effectively utilize relevant publicly available information."

Pursuant to the New York Freedom of Information Law, I hereby request the following records:

Any communication between OGS and these "outside groups" related to OGS's implementation of executive order 157 , (From 9/2/2016 - 12/31/2018). This should include, but not be limited to communications between the Israel-American Coalition for Action and OGS.

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 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Russel Neiss

This is a follow up to request number 6810:

To Whom It May Concern:

I'm following up on the following New York Freedom of Information Law request, copied below, and originally submitted on April 15, 2019. You had previously indicated that it would be completed on June 8, 2020. I wanted to check on the status of my request, and to see if there was a new estimated completion date. You had assigned it reference number #6810.

Thanks for your help, and let me know if further clarification is needed.

Subject: New York Freedom of Information Law Request: Untitled
To Whom It May Concern:

A September 2, 2016 letter from Alphonso David (Counsel to the Governor) to Commissioner RoAnn M. Destito outlines guidelines designed to assist OGS in its implementation of Executive Order 157. In part, the letter suggests that "OGS is permitted to work with other states that have implemented similar policies related to international boycott activities, and with related outside groups, in order to more effectively utilize relevant publicly available information."

Pursuant to the New York Freedom of Information Law, I hereby request the following records:

Any communication between OGS and these "outside groups" related to OGS's implementation of executive order 157 , (From 9/2/2016 - 12/31/2018). This should include, but not be limited to communications between the Israel-American Coalition for Action and OGS.

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 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Russel Neiss

Thanks so much for this. It appears as if only one of the two email responses went through. Can you resent the second one?

Attached is the determination letter that was sent regarding this matter. Since the records were too voluminous to send via email, we put them on a CD and mailed it out along with a copy of this letter. Please let us know if you do not receive this CD and we will get another one out to you asap.
