Good afternoon Beryl Lipton,

I have reviewed your request and our Purchasing Division has not solicited for social media surveillance software or equipment projects. We also do not have records in our system of having an agreement with any of the companies you list as well as popular social media companies therefore have no records to provide you at this time.

Please contact me at the below contact information if you require further assistance.
