Public Records Request (PRR) Tips

Be Specific

Consider how you can narrow the scope of your request to speed up the processing of your request.

Fees

The first four (4) hours of work performed to respond to a PRR will be performed at no cost.  After that, the Health Connector may charge up to $25 per hour.

Privacy Protection

Public agencies must adhere to the law requiring them to secure personally identifiable information and prevent unwarranted invasions of privacy.  Documents containing such information must be redacted carefully before releasing, expanding time needed for production.  Consider how you might revise your PRR to exclude records containing such information.
