To Whom It May Concern:

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

To Whom It May Concern:

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

All records, as well as documentation on products or agreements from/with Palantir, including, but not limited to, the following:

- Purchase Orders
- Current and previous contracts with Microsoft
- Requests for Proposals
- Memorandum(s) of Understanding
- Any privacy impact assessments
- Any instructional materials or presentations
- Use policies and standard operating procedures
- Data retention policies
- Usage policies
- Any informal agreements that reference "Palantir" or otherwise guide its use or the relationship between this agency and the provider or developer of the software/hardware.

I am confident that there are relevant documents to be produced from this request, as it is public knowledge that ICE utilizes Palantir's products (see https://theintercept.com/2017/03/02/palantir-provides-the-engine-for-donald-trumps-deportation-machine/): "Agents using ICM can also query ACRIMe, an extensive database operated by ERO that compiles data on immigrants in the United States."

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.

Sincerely,

Pablo Manriquez
