To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Texas Public Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

• Any and all policies, procedures, directives, or associated materials regarding the transportation and extradition of prisoners under the jurisdiction of this agency. If such materials exist for both the transportation of prisoners within this agency's jurisdiction and transportation of prisoners to locations outside of this agency's jurisdiction and these materials differ, provision of all would be greatly appreciated.

• Any and all contracts—as well as all associated amendments, exhibits, memorandums, directives, or other such additional materials—intergovernmental services agreements, and any other agreements regarding the transportation (of any type and length) of prisoners in the custody of this agency.

• For any transportation provided by a company, agency, or other entity that is not this agency, please provide all invoices for services, as well as any and all agreements (including supplemental elements) under which such services were provided

Further clarification can be provided upon request.

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 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Beryl Lipton

Hello Mr. Johnson,

Thanks so much for your letter. Regarding the individual purchase orders, would there happen to be a consolidated record of transactions from January 1, 2015 through today that would not require as much search time or redaction?

Thanks so much for your help,
Beryl
