Ms. Fletcher,

Please see the attached cost estimate for your request below.

Because the estimated cost exceeds $100, DSHS requires a deposit of 100% of the estimated cost prior to beginning work. The deposit should be received within ten (10) business days from the date of this letter or the request may be withdrawn by operation of law.

If you would like to discuss ways to lower this estimate or modify your request, please contact DSHS in writing within 10-business days from the date of this letter stating that a) you would like to modify your request; or alternatively b) you accept the charges and will send payment; or c) you are sending a complaint regarding the charges to the attorney general.

Please note payment of the deposit does not guarantee that you will receive the documents you seek, as DSHS may still raise exceptions to disclosure and send the documents to the Attorney General for ruling.

Thank you,
