Communications

From: Louise Matsakis


To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

All electronic communications, including attachments, sent to and received from employees of Color, created on or after April 1, 2020, through today's date, related to "CityTestSF."

WIRED has been a leading publication covering technology and science for more than 25 years, and this request is being made for newsgathering purposes. As such, I request that any fees that might normally be assessed be waived in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public.

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 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Louise Matsakis

From: Office of the Mayor

Louise,

Please see the attached records responsive to your request below. Please note that personal contact information has been redacted to protect personal privacy (Cal. Govt. Code Secs. 6254(c), California Constitution, Art. I, Sec. 1) and phone dial-in and video log-in conference information has been redacted under the official information privilege. (Cal. Evid. Code Sec. 1040(b)(2)).

Further, information relating to the City's bargaining position on certain contracting terms has been redacted. See SF Admin Code 67.23(a)(2), (e); Cal. Gov. Code 6254(a); 6255(a). Similarly, certain documents have been withheld in their entirety because they contain information concerning contract negotiations, the disclosure of which would place the city at a competitive disadvantage, and because the balance of the public interest disfavors production regarding such sensitive contracting and procurement information. See SF Admin Code 67.23(a)(2), (e); Cal. Gov. Code 6254(a); 6255(a). Finally certain documents have been withheld because they constitute the draft recommendation of the author and the balance of the public interest weighs against disclosing such non-final communications. See Admin Code 67.24(a)(1); Cal. Gov. Code § 6254(a); 6255(a).

Please note that we are invoking an extension of up to 14 days to continue our response due to the need to consult with another city department and we will provide additional responsive documents on a rolling basis. See Cal. Gov. Code § 6253(c) and San Francisco Admin. Code § 67.25(b).
Regards,

Hank Heckel
Compliance Officer
Office of the Mayor
City and County of San Francisco

Hi Hank,

Yes I have. Apologies for the confusion—we share an account for making FOIA accounts and I originally neglected to change the signature. Thanks very much for your help with both requests.
