Multi Request Communications with contractor Netsential


From: Jacob Silverman

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

All electronic communications, including emails, with Netsential, a Texas-based web hosting firm that contracts with local law enforcement, the FBI, and DHS. Netsential was recently the source of the hacked data known as BlueLeaks. I am especially seeking information about contracts Netsential has received to create and maintain websites and other digital services for the FBI, FBI-affiliated organizations, LE, and various intelligence fusion centers. Please also search for communications with Stephen Gartrell, the founder of Netsential.

Relevant news articles/links:

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 20 business days, as the statute requires.
