Thanks for your response. I am specially looking for written interactions between Cadiz, Inc. personnel and the department of Energy, Minerals, and Realty Management that led up to rescinding Memorandum 2014-122. The memo is signed by Acting Assistant Directory Timothy Spisak, but there could be other employees involved in the decision. I can narrow the dates down to February 1, 2017 to April 1, 2017.

Thank you.
