Kevin Reed’s PR Office now redacting public records *requests*

Say what you will about Dave Hubin’s management of UO’s Public Records Office, but at least when Dave was in charge they only redacted responses:

Under Kevin Reed, they’re now redacting the requests too.

On Friday I submitted two requests: one for three recent contract proposals, the other for a copy of the resolution of a recent investigation of UO by Betsy DeVos’s Office of Civil Rights. Plenty of public interest there!

The first request, as I emailed it to the PRO:

This is a public records request for the winning proposal and score sheets for the following RFP’s:

Request for Proposal for Lobbying Consulting Services
Solicitation Number: PCS# 500100-00124-RFP

RFQ for Brand Awareness Study
Solicitation Number: PCS# 520200-00134-RFQ

Strategic Planning Consulting Services
Solicitation Number: PCS# 110400-00026-RFQ

I ask for a fee waiver on the basis of public interest. I’m ccing Interim Director Greg Shabram, as he should have these documents readily at hand.

Thanks, Bill Harbaugh

But the PR log posting of this request redacts the requests for the “Brand Awareness” and “Strategic Planning Consulting” winning proposals, and also my request for a fee waiver:

A request for a fee-waiver is a secret?

The second request was for info about the Dept of Ed Office of Civil Rights investigation announced on Around the O a few months back, and now rumoured to have settled by negotiation between UO and OCR. My email:

This is a request for:

1) a copy of any resolution agreements or similar, between OCR and the University of Oregon, from Jan 1 2018 to the present.

2) any correspondence between OCR and the University of Oregon related to OCR investigations, from Jan 1 2018 to the present.

I would appreciate receiving these records as pdfs sent to this email address. I ask for a fee waiver on the basis of public interest.

Thanks, Bill Harbaugh

That request simply doesn’t exist, at least according to the PR log as of  Sept 11. Weird:
