Dear Beryl,
The City received a Public Records Request from you on April 20, 2018 for the following: "Pursuant to the Oregon Public Records Law, I hereby request the following documents:• All records regarding the purchase of, acquisition of, installation of, subscription to, payment for, or agreements concerning software designed to access information from social media services• Any and all contracts (as well as all associated amendments, exhibits, and materials), memorandums of understanding, and other equivalent agreements entered into by this agency with any software or equipment company providing services related to social media surveillance, including but not limited to:• BrightPlanet• Geofeedia• Intrado Inc.• LifeRaft• Magnet Forensics• Media Sonar• Signal Corporation• ZeroFOXResponsive materials should include but not be limited to:• the initial Invitation to Bid, Request for Proposal, or equivalent call for contractors• the responsive materials provided by the winning bidder• other bidder responses• the current contract• all exhibits• all amendments• all performance work statements• all deliverables inventories• all invoices related to the deliverance of software, services, or goodsPlease also include:• All records that contain any information about the functioning of software designed to access information from social media services that is used or has been used by this agency;• All records regarding correspondence about or with a company that offers software designed to access information from social media services, including but not limited to all correspondence about or with the companies Brightplanet, Geofeedia, Intrado Inc, LifeRaft, Magnet Forensics, Media Sonar, Signal Corporation, and ZeroFOX;• All policies related to the acquisition and use of social media by individual officers and representatives of this agency, including all records regarding the policies that govern access to or use of software designed to access information from social media services;• All training materials and all records used to instruct members of your agency in the proper use of software designed to access information from social media services or of the information such software is capable of accessing;• All records regarding the sharing with entities outside this agency of information obtained from or obtained by using software designed to access information from social media services;• All policies related to the acquisition and use of social media surveillance software by individual officers and representatives of this agency;• All records referencing social media profiles, comments, posts, messages, or events accessed or retained from social media services through use of software designed o access information from social media services.• All materials related to the use of any other social media platform, including but not limited to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Nextdoor, etc.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 would request your response within ten (10) business days."
You have requested a fee waiver from the City of Portland for the fees associated with your public records request.  The City requests the following information to evaluate your fee waiver request:
1) How do you or your organization intend to use the information?  (Please answer regarding the specific information requested as opposed to speaking generally regarding information on the general topic requested);
2) How will the information benefit the wider public?  (Please explain how this specific information assists the public given the information already provided to the public on this topic);
3) How do you or your organization intend to disseminate the information to the wider public?
Without responses to all 3 of these questions it may be difficult, or even impossible, to assess whether the requested disclosure is in the public interest because it will primarily benefit the public.
Please also bear in mind that the Bureau providing the records must weigh the public's interest in disclosure against the cost to the public of fulfilling the request without reimbursement.  As part of that balancing of interests, the City may consider the volume of the records requested.  Please discuss whether a more narrowly tailored, and thus less expensive, request could equally meet the public interest.
Sincerely,

PPB Queue
