As TCphoto1 notes, why do they want it?

My experience is that a request like this is almost always based on erroneous information someone got from "someone who is a great photographer".

A ton of weird ideas about RAW that completely contradicts the principle of hiring a pro in the first place.

It's from someone who is the media manager at a large corporation. They say that they require all the raw files so that they can have access to them at a later date and make changes to them; cropping, etc., to accommodate whatever they may need them for in the future without having to reach back out to the photographer and have them do it for them. From a business perspective, they say that it's not possible to foresee all the possible needs or changes to them that may be required in the future.

I automatically provide full-sized TIFFs and JPEGs of all selected images.  I inform them that everything they need to do can be done from the TIFF.
