Geofeedia Inc. Contracts, Invoice - Social Media Surveillance Policies (Virginia Military Institute Police)

Beryl Lipton filed this request with the Virginia Military Institute Police of Virginia.

It is a clone of this request.



From: Tom Nash

To Whom It May Concern:

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

Any and all contracts (as well as all associated amendments, exhibits, and materials), memorandums of understanding, and other equivalent agreements entered into by this agency with Geofeedia LLC or any other social media surveillance software or equipment company (including but not limited to Brightplaent, Geofeedia, Intrado Inc, LifeRaft, Magnet Forensics, Media Sonar, Signal Corporation, and ZeroFOX). Responsive materials should include but not be limited to:

• the initial Invitation to Bid, Request for Proposal, or equivalent call for contractors
• the responsive materials provided by the winning bidder
• other bidder responses
• the current contract
• all exhibits
• all amendments
• all performance work statements
• all deliverables inventories
• all invoices related to the deliverance of software, services, or goods

Please also include:
• all policies related to the acquisition and use of social media use and surveillance by individual officers and representatives of this agency

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 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Please note that I am a citizen of Virginia, and am using MuckRock's services to help manage and track my request.

Mr. Nash,

The Virginia Freedom of Information Act gives Virginia citizens a right to access public records, but it grants no such right to non-Virginians.
Thus, VMI is declining response to your request at this time.

Ms. Lipton from within your organization requested this same information a few weeks ago as well. I provided her with the same response above. However, I believe she had someone from Virginia Tech request this information on her behalf, so she may have the information already.

Please give me a call if you wish to discuss further … I hope all is well.

v/r, Lt Col Sean Harrington

Secretary to the VMI Board of Visitors

Mr. Nash … my apologies for the previous email. I did not read closely enough where you mentioned you were a citizen from Virginia. Enclosed is the material which you requested through the Virginia Freedom of Information Act via e-mail on 9 November 2016 in its entirety. I have waived any fees associated with this request. Please let me know if you need any additional information.

Again, my apologies … Lt Col Harrington
