Request #20-139

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Washington Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Records created in support of or leading the authoring of the letter of commitment issued by Sea-Tac Airport to United States Customs and Border Patrol regarding "biometric exit" at the airport (as referenced by Shair Ron in RFP 19-86). For example: related policy studies, assessments of potential implications of the letter, or documentation of the legal basis for the commitment.

Background: Associated with Port of Seattle [solicitation 19-86][1], "SEA Airport Biometric Air Exit System," is a related request for proposals. On page 40 of Port of Seattle RFP 19-86 (Contract S-00320105, "SEA Airport Biometric Air Exit System," prepared by senior buyer Shai Ron, advertising date 2020-01-30), under section III "Scope of Work," subsection "Current State," it is stated that "[a]s a condition of the IAF Simplified Arrival implementation, SEA has issued a letter of commitment to deploy a permanent biometric system for departing international flights."

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not. Please note that I do not wish to use your agency's workflow management system (your "records portal"). I am willing to communicate about this request via e-mail, fax, or postal mail, in that order of preference.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter.

I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.
