information explicitly exempt from disclosure (such as a SSN), exact copies are requested to extent they are not in proprietary formats, etc., with only the protected information (but not blank or null data) overwritten with some notation of the statutory exemption.
If no records exist responsive to the above request(s), I hereby request a certification to that effect. For records produced in response to the request(s), I hereby request certifications that the record(s) produced are correct.
I am requesting that these records be produced in electronic format and sent to the email address above. If records are too voluminous to be sent via email please contact me to discuss alternatives. If there is expected to be a delay in providing a part of the requested records, kindly produce the certified copies that are available and provide the remainder on a “rolling basis”.
If my request does not adequately describe the records to be produced, please contact me via e-mail so that I may clarify my request, and when appropriate inform me of the manner in which records are filed, retrieved or generated.
Pursuant to the UIPA, records available for public access in their entireties must be disclosed within a reasonable time, not to exceed 10 business days from the date the request was received, or after receipt of any prepayment required. Records not available in their entireties must be disclosed within 5 business days after this notice or after receipt of any prepayment required. HAR § 2-71-13(c). If incremental disclosure is authorized by HAR § 2-71-15, the first increment must be disclosed within 5 business days of this notice or after receipt of any prepayment required.
If for any reason any portion of my request is denied, please inform me of the reason(s) for each record denied in writing and provide the name, job title, address and e-mail address of the person or body to whom an appeal should be directed.
