From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com] Sent: Thursday, June 09, 2016 10:33 AM To: Finance-Director Subject: New California Public Records Act - Sacramento County submitted on 06/09/2016 Importance: High
Pursuant to the Public Records Act this is a request for a copy of the following record(s): An electronic copy of any and all active employee salaries for 2015. We are looking for the same data which is currently being reported to the California State Controller's Office by your agency (Data Dictionary: http://publicpay.ca.gov/Reports/DataDictionary.aspx), but we want the employee names to be included in the data dictionary. Here is a direct link to what your agency has already reported to the California State Controller's Office (http://publicpay.ca.gov/Reports/RawExport.aspx).
The principal purpose of this is to make this information more accessible to the public and to access and disseminate information regarding the health, safety, and welfare of the general public. This request is not principally for personal or commercial benefit. Our agency is just exercising the general rights of the public. For these reasons we are requesting a waiver of fees. If there is a charge for this service please obtain my approval in writing prior to proceeding with request.
All documents can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed in electronic format (preferred format would be .csv or .xls). If any documents are not provided in the format specified, please provide the state or federal statutes relied upon for that decision. If any record or portion of a record responsive to this request is contained in a record or portion of a record deemed unresponsive to the request, I would like to inspect the entire document. Under the Open Records Act/Freedom of Information Act, all non-exempt portions of any partially-exempt documents must be disclosed. If any records or portions of records are withheld, please state the exemption on which you rely, the basis on which the exemption is invoked, and the name of the individual responsible for the decision.
Thank you for your prompt consideration of my request. If you have any questions, or if I can be of any assistance, please e-mail me at email@example.com
