Availability of Public Records

The public may review any Southern Oregon University documents that are designated public records. See ORS 192.005(5) for the definition of “public records”. These documents are on file in University offices and may be reviewed during regular working hours. Copies of public records are available to the public upon request. The following charges will be made, payable in advance or when the materials are furnished:

(1) Copies of documents:

(a) $1.00 per page (2.00 if printed front and back);

(2) Other materials such as computer tapes, microfilm, and microfiche copies, audio tape cassettes, computer services, etc., shall be provided at a fee reasonably calculated to reimburse the University for actual costs incurred in making records available to the public.

(3) When materials are not readily available, such as in the case of files in the archives, or require an inordinate length of time to assemble due to the scope of the request, an additional charge of $10 per hour may be assessed to cover staff time required to make the information available.
