We write in response to your June 18, 2019 request for information pursuant to the Rhode Island Access to Public Records Act (APRA). Your specific request is noted below along with our corresponding response.
I am requesting copies of the bank responses to the RFP for banking services that all of the banks turned into State Treasurer’s office - I am requesting all of the information or as much as you can send back out to me.
Office of the General Treasurer does not currently have an executed contract as a result of the RFP for banking services. The requested responses to the RFP are protected from disclosure until such time as the contract is entered into, pursuant to Rhode Island General Laws section 38-2-2(4)(II)(B) and (I). You may resubmit your request within the next 45 days and once the contract process is complete and the documents become public, we will forward the requested documents.
If you contend you have been denied access to public records, pursuant to R.I.G.L. § 38-2-8, you may appeal this decision to Amy Crane, General Counsel, 50 Service Avenue, 2nd Floor, Warwick, RI 02886. You may also file a complaint with the Department of the Attorney General, 150 South Main Street, Providence, RI 02903 or the Rhode Island Superior Court of the county where the records are maintained.
