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.

Shawn Musgrave:

I received a follow-up fax to your request dated 04/29/14 under the APRS for
contracts for the ten (10) employees with the highest salaries at this
department. I had forwarded your request to the Human Resources Division of
the Department of Administration as if such records exist, they are
maintained by that department. I have been informed by DOA Ceputy Chief
Legal Counsel Peter Dennehy that he responded as follows: "The positions of
most employees of the Department of Administration are in the classified
service. A few positions are in the unclassified service. See chapter 36-4
of the RI General laws." The same would be true for the Department of Labor
and Training. Since no contracts exist, your request is denied.
