To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Government Records Access and Management Act this is a request for records on behalf of Wired magazine, a leading media outlet covering technology and society for more than 25 years. I hereby request the following records:
1. Copies of any contracts, memoranda of understanding, or any other agreements between Apple, manufacturer of the iPhone, and the Department of Public Safety, including the Driver License Division.
2. Copies of all emails, including attachments, between Apple and the Department of Public Safety, including the Driver License Division, between July 1, 2021, and the present date.
This request is being made for news-gathering purposes and the requested documents will be made available to the general public. Government spending on security technology is a clear matter of public interest. As such, I request a waiver from any fees that would ordinarily be assessed for fulfilling this request.
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.
Please see the attached response to your recent request for records.
