[See Editor’s Note](February 2020) Follow up submission related to “DPS Contract” info as of 12/17/19

Following up on this previous request:

“Please produce any and all contracts that the State of North Carolina, the North Carolina Department of Public Safety, and/or any subsidiary entities (i.e. DJJ) has with any entity for the operation of its facility located at 20 Lees Creek Road, in Buncombe County, North Carolina from 01/16/16 through 12/17/19.”

As stated in the original request, this would likely be a DPS contract. The response from DOA stating that a DPS contract would be maintained by DPS is simply acknowledging that they forwarded the request to the wrong department. Please press back on this obvious avoidance and do try to obtain this DPS contract.

Thanks again.

Editor’s Note 02/11/20: The above submission references a response we received on 01/29/2020 from [email protected] related to a now completed Sunshine Request (found here). Ben’s response indicated the request sent to the NC Department of Administration could not be fulfilled without a contract #, something we are unable to provide:

“Unfortunately we were not able to find the contract requested. If the requester does come across a bid number in the future then we would be happy to take another look.

It is possible that this contract was issued directly by the Department of Public Safety. If that’s the case then the contract would reside with their purchasing division. I have included a link to their website below.


Please note: The above February submission has been marked as “Completed”, and will be merged with the original December 2019 request, which will now be reopened and sent as a new request to the NC Department of Public Safety (purchasing division). Once the request has been sent, you will see this status update indicated on our site. Please keep track of the status at https://www.sunshinerequest.com/records_request/december-2019-request-for-dps-contract-info-as-of-12-17-19/.

Thank you for using Sunshine Request!
