These records are exempt from disclosure as the letter of intent to award has not been sent. Therefore, the contract is still in the "blackout period". Pursuant to LACMTA's Procurement Policy 8.9 A, "After receipt of proposals, the information contained in them and the number or identity of offerors shall not be made available to the public or to anyone in the MT A not required to have access to the information in the performance of his or her duties. "Furthermore, Government Code 6255(a) allows withholding documents when "public interest served by not disclosing the record clearly outweighs the public interest served by disclosure of the record."
You may contact me at email@example.com if you have any questions related to this public records request.
