820 R.I. Code R. § 820-RICR-00-00-2.5 - Procedures for Obtaining Access

A. A Request to Inspect and/or Copy Public Records of the Corporation (the "Request") shall be presented in writing to the Executive Director at the Office of the Corporation located at 55 Dorrance Street, Suite 300, Providence, Rhode Island 02903 during regular business hours of the Corporation.
B. All such Requests must contain a description of the Public Record sought sufficient to enable identification and location of the Public Record by personnel of the Corporation. Persons filing a Request will be notified if the description is insufficient. Notwithstanding the foregoing or the other provisions of § 2.5 of this Part, if the Executive Director determines that any such Request may be easily and quickly complied with without the need for a written Request, then such written Request will not be necessary.
C. The Corporation will respond to such Requests as quickly as possible, and in any event within ten (10) business days of the receipt of the Request.
D. If a record is in active use or storage and, therefore, not available at the time of such a Request, the Executive Director or his or her designee shall so inform the person making the Request, and shall further offer an appointment to such individual to examine such records as expeditiously as they may be made available.
E. Printouts of properly identified disclosable data maintained by the Corporation in a computer storage system shall be available to persons following the above stated procedures.
F. The Corporation is not required to reorganize, consolidate, or compile data which is not maintained by the Corporation in the form requested at the time of the request to inspect such Public Records was made.
G. The Executive Director may restrict access to Public Records to specified times and days, consistent with these Rules, if it is determined that this is necessary or appropriate to prevent unnecessary disruption of the Corporation's work.
