Communications

From: Shawn Musgrave

To Whom It May Concern:

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

-The current memorandum of agreement (MOA) or memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Defense Logistics Agency, Disposition Services regarding the 1033 equipment surplus program administered by the DLA Law Enforcement Support Office

-The annual inventory form required to be completed by MSP by the state coordinator of the 1033 program

According to the DLA FAQ page regarding the 1033 program, yours is the agency in charge of coordinating the 1033 program for the state. See http://www.dispositionservices.dla.mil/leso/Pages/StateCoordinatorList.aspx

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Shawn Musgrave

Please consider this correspondence the Virginia Department of State Police ( the department) response to your email seeking The current memorandum of agreement (MOA) or memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Defense Logistics Agency, Disposition Services regarding the 1033 equipment surplus program administered by the DLA Law Enforcement Support Office and the annual inventory form required to be completed by MSP by the state coordinator of the 1033 program. As you may be aware, requests for records of the Commonwealth, its agencies and political subdivisions are governed by the Virginia Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), §§ 2.2-3700 et. seq. of the Code of Virginia.

Pursuant to § 2.2-3700 the Virginia General Assembly ensured the people of the Commonwealth ready access to public records. This citizen only access restriction was recently upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in McBurney v Young, 569 US __ (12-17) (April 29, 2013). Based upon the address you provided it appears you are not a citizen of the Commonwealth and as a non-resident you are not entitled to records or documents under Virginia FOIA.

I regret the department cannot be of further assistance to you in this matter.
