Public Records Request: P000391-110518


RE: PUBLIC RECORDS REQUEST of 11/5/2018.
Reference #P000391-110518
Dear Requester,
I am writing in response to your public records request of November 5, 2018, in which you requested the following:
* The contract signed between UW-Madison and the vendor who provided the tournament and services for the 2018 Battle 4 Atlantis Men's Basketball tournament to be held in November 2018;
* A copy of the final itinerary (if available); and Tournament manual (if available) for the trip. Access the Public Records Center to download the responsive records.
Note that we are denying your request at this time for the final itinerary for the following reason:
The itinerary is a draft. Under Wisconsin Statute Section 19.32(2), a record under the public records law "does not include drafts, notes, preliminary computations, and like materials prepared for the originator's personal use or prepared by the originator in the name of a person for whom the originator is working." Therefore, the public's right under the records law does not extend to these documents.
You are, of course, free to submit a new request for this document and we will evaluate your request at that time.
The university is required to inform you that to the extent this amounts to a denial of your request it is subject to review by mandamus under Wis. Stat. § 19.37(1)(a) or by application to the attorney general or district attorney pursuant to Wis. Stat. § 19.37(1)(b).
This request is closed.
Sincerely,
Elizabeth Wilkerson
Deputy Public Records Custodian

Dear Ms. Wilkerson,

thank you for your email of 1/16/19 regarding my request (below):

While the itinerary for the trip might be in draft form, the contract itself signed between the Men's Basketball Team and the Battle 4 Atlantis and/or Complete Sports Management should be available as that is not a draft. Can you please send that as it should be readily available.

Thank you.
