Good afternoon, Ms. Komatsoulis --

Our office is in receipt of your request of August 7, 2018, and subsequent follow-up message of August 13, 2018 for the following:

- A copy of any and all contracts (including associated amendments and exhibits) awarded to Pepsi, Coca-Cola, or any subdivision thereof, for the provision of beverages or other goods in any facilities under the purview of this organization, including all activities and buildings associated with athletics, sports, dining services, or otherwise. If this agency does not have a contract with either of the named companies, please provide the equivalent agreement with the currently employed company.

- If the contract(s) was cancelled, any and all materials related to its cancellation.

We are determining the existence and/or availability of the records you seek and will provide you with an appropriate response. The Ohio Public Records Act requires that a public office respond to a public records request within a "reasonable amount of time." This time requirement must be judged within the context of the circumstances in each individual case. State ex rel. Wadd v. City of Cincinnati, 81 Ohio St. 3d 50, 53, 689 N.E.2d 25 (1998). Further, this standard incorporates an opportunity for legal review. State ex rel. Taxpayers Coalition v. City Lakewood, 86 Ohio St. 3d 385, 715 N.E.2d 179 (1999).

I will notify you if there will be any charges associated with photocopying (if applicable).
