To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New York State Freedom of Information Law (1977 N.Y. Laws ch. 933), I hereby request the following records:

The three-year contract awarded to Corizon Health to provide medical services for Rikers Island, effective January 1, 2013.

From a Corizon press release (available online here at http://www.corizonhealth.com/Corizon-News/corizon-awarded-rikers-island-contract):

The contract will continue Corizon’s partnership with the New York Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) and the city’s jail system. The agreement is for three years, with one three-year renewal opportunity. Corizon and its predecessor companies have held the contract since 2001.


[....]

The new contract allows Corizon to provide comprehensive medical care to approximately 11,000 inmates in the Rikers Island system. One of the tools the partnership will continue to leverage is the Electronic Health Record (EHR) system, which enables ongoing enhancement in the quality of care Corizon provides to its patients.

[....]

Among other services, Corizon’s team will perform a wide variety of on- and off-site functions, including medical, dental, pharmaceutical, diagnostic and chronic care, as well as administrative, staffing, information technology and management services.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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,

Shawn Musgrave

Respectfully, a standard contracts database should be able to locate a contract via the contractor name.

Please confirm with your contracts database administrator that you are unable to search for the contract using the contractor name. I have provided both the contractor name and the subject matter of the request, and this should be sufficient for you to determine whether your agency has responsive documents to this request under FOIL.

Best,
Shawn
