Handling Public Records Requests under FOIA

Any request for public records, which includes tape recordings, email messages and other electronically stored information, should be treated as a FOIA request. If the request is verbal, please ask the requester to provide his or her request in writing to keep track of the required response date and to guard against ambiguity concerning the records being sought. (Keep in mind that a written request is not required by law.) All FOIA requests should be forwarded to the designated FOIA officer immediately at foia@cnydh.net. The College must respond to a FOIA request within five business days.
