    Thank you for your confirmation and suggestion. With Google platform on our end, even some pretty small zip files will bump over into the receiver having to open them via a Google drive folder and I’ve found that this can be problematic for some recipients. However, to your point, I probably could have broken it down into several zip files that were small enough not to require the Google drive and reduce the number of emails. I’ll keep that in mind going forward.

    Hi Bonnie,

     

    In regard to my public records request:

     

    (October 2023) Request for State of North Carolina, Central Piedmont Community College (Charlotte, NC): All “onsite” Food Service RFPs, and the Awarded Contracts. And any food service vendor contracts arranged without a formal RFP. From 01/01/2015 – 10/31/2023.

     

    Thank you for your messages on 01/18:

    Jan 18, 2024, 10:19 AM

     

    Between the 9 emails there were a total of 29 attachments to review. I was able to download all 29, and I “zipped” them into one folder.

     

    I appreciate your efforts to not exceed the attachment size limitations that sometimes occur via email. I would just like to note for the future, I do think those files are small enough they could be zipped and sent to a requester in 1 email.

     

    Assuming that all 29 files complete the request, and are the only responsive
    records that exist — I have uploaded them to our website, and I will now mark this request as “Completed”.

     

    Thank you very much for your help!

    Good morning.

     

    Central Piedmont Community College conducted a search for records responsive to your request for ‘“onsite” Food Service RFPs, and the Awarded Contracts, Central Piedmont Community College. During the time period of January 01, 2015 through October 31, 2023’ and has located records responsive to this request. The college makes every effort to provide records to requestors free of charge so you were not provided with a cost estimate prior to our search and compilation of records for production. In an effort not to exceed any email size restrictions on your end, I am transmitting the records in a series of emails and will title the final email as such.

     

    Please see the attached records in this first of a series of emails to follow.

     

    Thank you,
