Mr. Neidenbach,

In response to your public records request of July 14, 2017 for emails to or from Dr. Erin Silva and Organic Valley or Clif Bar we have calculated a search time cost estimate and ask for prepayment before proceeding.

The Wisconsin Public Records Law allows the university to charge a requester the actual, necessary, and direct cost to locate responsive records. Wis. Stat.§ 19.35(3)(c). In addition, the university may require prepayment of any fees if the total amount exceeds $5.00. Wis. Stat.§ 19.35(3)(f).

The university has calculated a good faith estimate of the cost to search for records responsive to your request. That cost is $137.04. Location fees are calculated at the hourly salary rate for the lowest-paid employee capable of performing the task. Please note that payment of the fee does not guarantee that records will be located or that you will receive all information requested.

This amount was calculated using the rate for actual, necessary and direct charges for staff time and does not include the additional time necessary to review potentially responsive records for possible redaction or removal of confidential information, which are separate processes for which a requester may not be charged. We require prepayment of these location costs before conducting the search for responsive records.

Until we receive this prepayment, the university will not process your request. Once payment is received, we will process your request and determine the exact cost of searching for any records responsive to your request. If the cost is greater than $137.04, we will require payment of any overage. If the cost is less, we will refund the balance to you. If we do not receive payment within 14 business days of today, that is, by Feb. 23, 2017 we will close this request and consider it withdrawn.

Please make your check or money order payable to "UW-Madison," (we cannot accept credit cards) and send it to:

UW-Madison Office of Compliance
Public Records
Room 361 Bascom Hall
500 Lincoln Drive
Madison WI 53706

Mr. Neidenbach,

Below, I have corrected the date by which we must receive payment, which was wrong in the first estimate I sent you. My apologies for any inconvenience.
