To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Louisiana Public Records Law, I hereby request the following records:

I am requesting a copy of the contract signed between the Louisiana Tech Athletic program and the vendor who provided services for the 2018 Louisiana Tech Men's Basketball tour to Costa Rica in August 2018. I am also requesting a copy of the final itinerary for the trip.

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 look forward to receiving your response to this request within 3 business days, as the statute requires.

Thank you for your request. Our agency does hold the records that you are
requesting. I have forwarded your request to our University's Legal Counsel
who in turn forwarded it to our athletic department. This was done on
November 25th. They should be contacting you about the requested materials.

All the Best,

We have received your records request. After a diligent search, no
responsive documents have been located at this time. The contract you have
requested was not executed by the University. The contract was executed by
the Louisiana Tech Foundation which is a separate entity not subject to
records requests. I have requested the itinerary which I expect is a record
maintained by the University and will provide that once received.
