Subject: FOAA Request for Future Bids for City of Biddeford, Maine

Dear Danica,

We are sending this email to make a FOAA Request for a long term planning list of bids, if you maintain such a list.  These would be bids that are planned, but not yet advertised.  We are requesting this information for a business and academic study that we are completing. 

In our experience some agencies, but not all, publish these 'advanced planning' lists of long-term bids to help their respondents plan ahead.  If you do not publish such a list, please let us know that as well, and we will not make further inquiries about this topic.

Generally organizations that have this information available would include project details such as the ID of the project, estimated project values, project descriptions, project locations etc. 

Kind regards,

Dave Cox, PE
