Request #19-280
  Closed

Dear Sir/Madam:

Pursuant to the North Carolina Public Records Act (N.C. Gen. Stat. Ann. § 132-1 et seq.), the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) requests copies of any contracts, signed and/or active as of June 19, 2019, between University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and The Coca-Cola Company, PepsiCo, Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Red Bull, Polar Beverages, and/or any other company offering rights to sell, market, promote, and/or advertise beverages on University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill campus.

CSPI also requests copies of any and all emails exchanged between employees of University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and employees of The Coca-Cola Company, PepsiCo, Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Red Bull, Polar Beverages, and/or other beverage company, in the past three years, relating to contracts with the companies and/or marketing of beverages or volume of beverage sales.

If this request is denied in whole or in part, we ask that you cite in writing the specific statutory exemption upon which you have relied, as required by law. CSPI anticipates “that the people may obtain copies … and public information free or at minimal cost unless otherwise specifically provided by law.” N.C. Gen. Stat. Ann. § 132-1(b). Please waive any costs associated with this request, or first inform us prior to taking any action that would incur costs.

The law requires you to respond “as promptly as possible” in providing copies of public records. N.C. Gen. Stat. Ann. § 132-6(a). Please send copies of beverage contracts separate from copies of emails if the latter will take longer to produce, rather than waiting to produce all requested documents at one time.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this request. If you have any questions, please contact me at 202-777-8385, or by email at egreenthal@cspinet.org.

Sincerely,

Eva Greenthal, MS, MPH
