From: Todd Feathers

To Whom It May Concern:

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

1) Copies of all data use and project applications submitted since to the chief data officer, executive data board, and/or data governance council of the Commonwealth Data Trust, as outlined in the attached data trust agreement (specifically Exhibit A), since the inception of the Commonwealth Data Trust.

2) Documentation of whether the above referenced use and project applications were approved or rejected (e.g., a list of all approved uses and projects—which would be my preference, if available—or individual acceptance or rejection letters).

I ask that all fees be waived as intend to use the requested records to further public understanding of public agencies and not for any commercial purpose. In the event you choose to impose fees, I request a detailed breakdown of the fees, including the hourly wage of each employee involved and an explanation justifying the employee hours required to fulfill the request.

Should you choose to reject this request or redact portions of responsive documents, I ask that you provide a detailed breakdown of the statutory exemptions and associated case law underlying your decision to withhold each/any portions from public review.

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.

This request is filed by Tom Nash, a citizen of Virginia, in coordination with Todd Feathers.
