Request for Records

Note:  While the language below is optional, using the portions of it that are most applicable to your request may enhance your use of the Freedom of Information Law.  Please individualize your request by cutting-and-pasting the bullets relevant to your request into the body of your e-mail or letter (e-mail link is at right).

  • Please provide me with the following records by e-mail, if possible: [Include as much detail about the record(s) as possible, such as relevant dates, names, Request for Proposals or Request for Quotations numbers, etc.]

  • If all of the records I have requested cannot be e-mailed to me, please inform me by e-mail of the portions that can be e-mailed and advise me of the cost for reproducing the remainder of the records requested.  [The Freedom of Information Law currently authorizes agencies to charge $0.25 per page for documents up to 8-1/2 inches by 14 inches in size, or the actual cost of reproduction for documents with larger pages or for color copies.  It is the New York Power Authority’s policy to require payment of the copying charges before sending records to Freedom of Information Law requesters.]

  • If the requested records cannot be e-mailed to me due to the volume of records identified as responsive to my request, please advise me of the actual cost of copying such records onto a CD-ROM, if that is possible.  [It is the New York Power Authority’s policy to require payment of the electronic copying charges before sending records to Freedom of Information Law requesters.]

  • Please advise me of the cost of providing paper copies of the following records:  [Include as much detail about the record(s) as possible, such as relevant dates, names, Request for Proposals or Request for Quotations numbers, etc.  The Freedom of Information Law currently authorizes agencies to charge $0.25 per page for documents up to 8-1/2 inches by 14 inches in size, or the actual cost of reproduction for documents with larger pages or for color copies.  It is the New York Power Authority’s policy to require payment of the copying charges before sending records to Freedom of Information Law requesters.]

  • Please advise me of the appropriate time and place during the Authority’s normal business hours for inspecting the following records:  [Include as much detail about the record(s) as possible, such as relevant dates, names, Request for Proposals or Request for Quotations numbers, etc.]

  • If my request is too broad or does not reasonably describe the records, please contact me via e-mail so that I may clarify my request and, when appropriate, please advise me as to how New York Power Authority records are filed, retrieved, or generated.

  • If for any reason any portion of my request is denied, please inform me of the reasons for the denial in writing and provide the name, mailing address, and e-mail address of the person to whom an appeal should be directed.
