(September 2022) Multi-part request for Asheville Buncombe Technical College: All employee names, salaries, benefits (as of present day). And, “salary ranges” for all President(s), Vice President(s), Associate Vice President(s), Executive Director(s), director positions 01/01/17 – 08/31/22

Hello Kerri / AB Tech Records Officer,

I'd like to make a multi-part public records request for the following information under NC Public Records Law.
Ref: https://www.ncleg.net/enactedlegislation/statutes/html/bychapter/chapter_132.html

A. Please provide the Names, Salaries, and Benefits for ALL Asheville Buncombe Technical College employees for the 2022-23 school year (as of the date the query is performed).

B. Please provide the “salary ranges” for ALL President(s), Vice President(s), Associate Vice President(s), Executive Director(s), or director positions, and any positions that may be equivalent to these. During the specific time period of 01/01/2017 to 08/31/2022 (or present day). Please include Name, Position / Title, Salary minimum and Salary maximum.

** If you are unable to fulfill any or all parts of this request, please ask Legal Counsel to specifically cite where a reason for the denial is justified under NC Public Records Law. **

Thank you for your assistance!

Editor’s Note: Sunshine Request makes no claim as to the veracity of any statements or information contained in any of the requests, or public records, we receive.

09/02/22 Editor’s Note to Sender: We hope that this won’t be the case… but, please be advised it could potentially take quite some time to fulfill the above request — specifically, because our team has been working to complete the following requests with A-B Tech for several months:

(September 2021) Request for A-B Tech Promotion info 05/01/21 – 07/31/21, and, for institutional financials as of Present Day

(March 2022) Request for A-B Tech: Marketing & Advertising Service contract(s) and agreements(s) 2020 – 2022

Patrick Conant is the Director of Sunshine Request. He has been following up with Kerri and A-B Tech via a direct email he sent on 06/15/22 and 07/12/22. He is trying to determine how we can receive those (and all other) public records results from A-B Tech moving forward.

To date, it has been very difficult to complete requests with their office over the years. At whatever point we receive a response or clarity on next steps regarding any / all of our requests, those updates will be posted on our site.

Thank you for using Sunshine Request!

    Hi Kerri,

     

    I’m following up again on the request above sent to your offices on 09/07: (September 2022) Multi-part request for Asheville Buncombe Technical College: All employee names, salaries, benefits (as of present day). And, “salary ranges” for all President(s), Vice President(s), Associate Vice President(s), Executive Director(s), director positions 01/01/17 – 08/31/22

    Requests should come to me and not to the general college inbox, which is monitored by our call center. That email is primarily for students to use when asking questions during non-business hours. Thanks.

    Hi Kerri,

     

    Thanks for checking.

     

    Yes, correct. One identical request was sent yesterday [ (September 2022) Multi-part request for Asheville Buncombe Technical College: All employee names, salaries, benefits (as of present day). And, “salary ranges” for all President(s), Vice President(s), Associate Vice President(s), Executive Director(s), director positions 01/01/17 – 08/31/22 ] to both the request form (at https://abtech.edu/contact-us/information-request-form) and to your inbox.

     

    You’ve reported before that one of our past requests and follow ups was “not received” when sent via the form, so I thought it makes sense now to send a copy of the request above to your inbox as well to ensure it is received and begins processing promptly.

     

    I will plan on following up again around mid-month to request a status update and timeline for completion, if I don’t hear anything from you before then.

     

    Thank you.

    We have received your request and are consulting with legal counsel. Is the request you sent to our general college inbox any different?

    Good afternoon AB-Tech Community College (Records Officer),

     

    I’d like to make a public records request for information that may be available in your office.

     

    If you’re not the appropriate party to contact about the request, please provide the correct name and email address of whom I should send it to. I’ve also sent this request via AB-Tech’s Information Request Form, but wanted to send it here too.

     

    Please confirm receipt to let me know the request will begin processing, and if possible, please provide a rough estimate of when the request may be completed. I will plan on following up again around the end of the month if I have not heard back before then.

     

    Here are the details of the request:
