172-10-050. Obligations of requestors

(1) Reasonable notice that request is for public records. A requestor must give Eastern Washington University reasonable notice that the request is being made pursuant to the Public Records Act. Requestors should refer to the Public Records Act; however, requests using terms such as "public records," "public disclosure," "FOIA," or "Freedom of Information Act" shall be considered by the university as requests for information under the Public Records Act.

(2) Identifiable record. A requestor must request an "identifiable record" or "class of records" before the university can respond. An "identifiable record" is one that university staff can reasonably locate. An identifiable record is not a request for "information" in general. When a request uses an inexact phrase such as all records "relating to" a topic, the university may seek clarification of the request from the requestor.
