From: Carolyn Komatsoulis

To Whom It May Concern:

I'm submitting this request through the United States Postal Service after numerous attempts to do so through the University of Virginia's online public records portal were unsuccessful because the portal isn't working properly.

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

- A copy of any and all contracts (including associated amendments and exhibits) awarded to Pepsi, Coca-Cola, or any subdivision thereof, for the provision of beverages or other goods in any facilities under the purview of this organization, including all activities and buildings associated with athletics, sports, dining services, or otherwise. If this agency does not have a contract with either of the named companies, please provide the equivalent agreement with the currently employed company.

- If the contract(s) was cancelled, any and all materials related to its cancellation.

- If the contract was cancelled, the statement from the university about cancellation.

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.

Sincerely,

Carolyn Komatsoulis
