The City of Boston (City) has received your request for public records. This response applies only to records that exist and are in the custody of the City. See A Guide to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, p. 32, n.115. It is expected that a custodian of records must use her superior knowledge of her records with respect to responses to public records requests. 950 CMR 32.04(5). Specifically, you stated:

If the response was sent outside the GovQA system (e.g. by email or provided physically) no need to track it down; I am just seeking files provided via GovQA.

Hello, I’m just checking in to see the status of this request.

Would it be possible to fulfill this request by setting the listed requests as “public” in GovQA? I believe this would make the requests and responses available in the GovQA “Public Records Request Archive.”

Thank you, Nathan
