Or. Admin. R. 603-001-0170 - Public Interest Test

In determining whether sufficient public interest for a fee waiver is demonstrated, the department will consider:

(1) The requester's identity, public interest affiliation, and contact information;
(2) The purpose for which the requester intends to use the information;
(3) The character of the information;
(4) Whether the requested information is already in the public domain;
(5) Whether the requester can demonstrate the ability to disseminate the information to the public;
(6) The requester's inability to pay, but this fact alone is not a sufficient basis for a fee waiver;
(7) If the requester seeks technical information, a showing that the requester is able to understand that information and disseminate it to the public in a meaningful form;
(8) Any other additional information provided by the requester that would be helpful for the department in evaluating the request for a fee waiver or fee reduction. Appendix 1
