Working Narratives:

You have submitted your request for "[a]ll records (including reports, email, technical manuals, technical specifications, or any other materials) regarding the purchase of, acquisition of, installation of, subscription to, payment for, or agreements concerning Carnegie Communications technology" to The University of Texas System ("UT System"). However, the agreement with Carnegie Communications is with The University of Texas at Austin ("UT Austin").

Due to a legal review of some information pertaining to this agreement, UT System maintains the requested records. However, it only maintains the requested records in a privileged capacity. Accordingly, we will seek an Attorney General opinion to withhold the responsive information. In light of this fact, please let me know if you would withdraw your request to UT System and instead submit it to the appropriate entity, UT Austin. To make a request to UT Austin, you could email your request to cfo@austin.utexas.edu<mailto:cfo@austin.utexas.edu>.
