Dear Rutgers University,

I do not want to use your portal. Put the documents here. Thanks in advance.

Yours faithfully,

OPRARU, Rutgers University

The University has received your request. The University has reviewed your request and has determined that, as written, this request is overly broad. OPRA provides access to "identifiable" government records that are not otherwise exempt. New Jersey courts have held that a request under OPRA must specifically describe the document sought. "A proper request for access to government records must identify with reasonable clarity those documents that are desired, and a party cannot satisfy this requirement by simply requesting all of an agency's documents." Bent v. Stafford Police Department, 381 N.J. Super. 30, 38 (App. Div. 2005). A blanket request for a class of various documents is not a request for specific identifiable documents, and a custodian is not required to conduct research to locate records potentially responsive to a request. See Elcavage v. West Milford Twp., GRC Complaint No. 2006-64 (May 28, 2008). Moreover, OPRA does not require a custodian to conduct research or an agency to expend "indisputably limited agency resources to sift through the [agency's] vast files and identify, analyze and select potentially relevant and responsive public records." Spectraserv v. Middlesex County Utilities Authority, 416 N.J. Super. 565, 578 (App. Div. 2010), Burnett v. Gloucester County, 415 N.J. Super. 506, 515 (App. Div. 2010). Nor does OPRA require an agency to analyze, collate and compile records in order to respond to a request. MAG Entertainment v. Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control, 375 N.J. Super. 534, 549 (App. Div. 2005). "In short, OPRA does not countenance open-ended searches of an agency's files." Id. at 549.

Please clarify your request or submit narrower search terms by including a time frame, or specifying precisely what records you are seeking.

Dear Ms. Battle,

It looks like that on April 7, 2021 you provided the following attachment: 1]Bloomberg_Agreement_Camden_School_of_Business.pdf

However, I can not open it. Can you respond so that it is on the opramachine website so that I can open it? I was able to open the other pdf letters that you provided so if you can do the same thing you did there please.

Regarding my other requests, I have waited for you to provide the documents I have requested for over 3 weeks. Contracts should be immediately available to citizens.

NJSA 47:1A-5 e. Immediate access ordinarily shall be granted to budgets, bills, vouchers, contracts, including collective negotiations agreements and individual employment contracts, and public employee salary and overtime information.

It is hard to understand why a great, Big 10 University, such as Rutgers University, with state-of-the-art accounting and finance systems does not easily have access to electronic copies of its contracts to provide upon request. Let me know specifically when these contracts can be provided. Thanks in advance.

Yours faithfully,
