RE: California Public Records Act Request: San Francisco County Contract

Dear Ms. Desmond:
We received your public records request on August 4, 2017 for the following:
“all documents related to the San Francisco County contract with Accela to purchase Accela permitting software, including the original contract, the date, implementation and maintenance costs, total cost, contract duration, and all services rendered.”

Response:

We are working to gather all documents responsive to your request. However, we need you to clarify the documents you expect for “…all services rendered.” Please help us narrow our search so we can best produce the responsive documents to your request. We will be in touch with you within the 10-day period, which is no later than on Monday, August 14, 2017.

Please note that we are providing documents only from the Department of Building Inspection. The original contract was signed in 2012, thus, documents relating to that will be provided. Please confirm the time period of your request, i.e. 2012 to date of request. The Department of Technology may also have a contract with Accela, which you can obtain by contacting them directly at DTRecordsRequest@sfgov.org<mailto:DTRecordsRequest@sfgov.org>.

If this letter does not clearly state the documents/items you are requesting, please contact me as soon as possible so that we can begin to comply with your request.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at (415) 558-6107 or by email at dbi.sunshinerequests@sfgov.org<mailto:dbi.sunshinerequests@sfgov.org>.

Hi Lily,

Thank you. We are interested in the original contract between Accela and San Francisco County showing the implementation and projected maintenance costs from 2012. If you have since changed to a new product or vendor we would be interested to see that contract as well.

Please let me know if you need any further clarification.

Best wishes,

Justine

Dear Ms. Desmond:

Please see attached documents in response to your August 4, 2017 request and reflecting subsequent clarifying email on August 9, 2017. We continue to work with Accela on implementing this new software system for DBI. We do have a new contract with them that is being handled by the Department of Technology.

We have finished conducting our search and found no other documents responsive to your request. Therefore, we consider your request closed.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at (415) 558-6107 or by email at dbi.sunshinerequests@sfgov.org.
