Dear ,

This letter is made pursuant to the Public Records Act of the Commonwealth of Virginia, Va. Code Ann. 2.1 341 et seq.

This letter is to direct you, your officer(s) and or agents to provide me with copies of all documents as described below:

Copies of all active research protocols involving primates
Copies of all daily care logs for primates for the last year
Copies of all primate necropsy reports for the last year
Copies of all correspondence between VCU/MCV and the United States Department of Agriculture for the last two years

If any of these documents are available in electronic format, please provide them in that form.

The requester is prepared to pay for all actual costs pursuant to Va. Code Ann. 2.1-342(A)(4) up to an initial amount of $100. If the fees will exceed this amount provide me with a detailed estimation of the fee, in advance before performing said work.

The requester asserts that all records requested above are public records as defined by the laws of Virginia. Should you come to an opposite decision, please segregate all claimed exempted portions, provide access to the remaining information and provide me with a detailed written statement of the law(s) or any other provision that prohibits said disclosure that you believe to apply, pursuant to Va. Code Ann. 2.1-342(A).

The requester, further, requests a response to this request within five (5) business days of its receipt, pursuant to Va. Code Ann. 2.1-342.
