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.

Dear Mr. Musgrave: Your APRA request addressed to the Lottery Commission dated April 29, 2014 seeking “Contracts for the ten(10) employees with the highest salaries” has been referred to me for response.

Please be advised that the Rhode Island Lottery has no such documents. The reason that it has no such documents is because Rhode Island Lottery employees do not have contracts.

A response to your request was sent via e-mail dated April 30, 2014. A copy of both requests and the April 29, 2014 response thereto is attached hereto.
