Dear Requestor:

The referenced request for " all emails, correspondence and memorandum of understanding between DOH, DHSS, NJIT and NJII that pertains to the Scope of Work, Deliverables and Work/Production Performance related to the development, operation and performance of the NJ-HIN." records is improper. The request is overbroad, nonspecific, and unduly burdensome in that it would require the custodian to conduct research and exercise discretion.

Therefore, the government records law, N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1 et seq., obliges me to deny the request. You have the right to appeal this determination in accordance with applicable law.

Sincerely,

Thomas A. Starr, MICP
