Contract No. K8262
Amendment No. 5

is made by the state of Washington, Department of Corrections, hereinafter

referred to as “Department,” and JPay, Inc., hereinafter referred to as the “Contractor,” for the purpose of
amending the above-referenced Contract, heretofore entered into between the Department and the
WHEREAS the purpose of this contract amendment is to add provisions regarding the public records act.
NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the terms and conditions contained herein, or attached and
incorporated and made a part hereof, the Department and Contractor agree as follows:
Section 11.18 Public Records Act is hereby amended to the contract as follows:



This Agreement and all records associated with the performance of this Agreement shall be available
from the Department for inspection and copying by the public when required by the Public Records
Act, Chapter 42.56 RCW (the "Act").


If records in the custody of the Contractor are needed by the Department to respond to a request under
the Act, as determined by the Department, the Contractor agrees to make them promptly available to
the Department. Upon request by the Department, the Contractor further agrees to provide a detailed
index of records associated with its performance of the contract. This index will allow for more efficient
and accurate identification of potentially responsive records.


If the Contractor considers any portion of any record associated with the Contractor’s performance
under this Agreement to be protected from disclosure under law, the Contractor shall clearly identify
the specific information that it claims to be confidential or proprietary when the records are provided
to the Department in response to a public records request. The Department retains sole discretion in
the appropriateness and application of withholdings and redactions on all records.


If the Department receives a request under the Act to inspect or copy information identified by the
Contractor as confidential or proprietary and the Department determines that release of the
information is required by the Act or otherwise is appropriate, the Department’s sole obligation shall
be to notify the Contractor (a) of the request and (b) of the date that such information will be released
to the requester unless the Contractor obtains a court order to enjoin that disclosure pursuant to RCW
42.56.540. If the Contractor fails to timely obtain a court order enjoining disclosure, the Department
will release the requested information on the date specified with whatever withholdings and redactions
it deems proper.


The Department is not obligated to claim any exemption from disclosure under the Act on behalf of
the Contractor. The Department shall not be liable to the Contractor for releasing records not clearly
identified by the Contractor as confidential or proprietary. The Department shall not be liable to the
Contractor for releasing any records in compliance with this section, in compliance with the Act, or in
compliance with an order of a court of competent jurisdiction.
