ATTN: Custodian of Records

Under the New Jersey Open Public Records Act, N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1 et seq., and New Jersey Common Law, I am requesting immediate access to the following public records:

All records to include the name, full application- to include date of submission of said application from the Recruitment, Onboarding, and Classification System (ROCS) (with address and phone number redacted), resume, references (only names), date of selection, date of notification and salary of the individual selected for the position of ‘Disabilities Specialist’ within the Rutgers Office of Employment Equity starting their employment in March of 2021.

I would like copies of these records sent to be via email in PDF format if convenient.

If there are any fees for these records, please inform me if the cost will exceed $50. However, I would also like to request a waiver of all fees in that the disclosure of the requested information is in the public interest and will contribute significantly to the public’s understanding of the appropriation of Rutgers University funds which include New Jersey taxpayer revenue. This information is not being sought for commercial purposes.

The New Jersey Open Public Records Act stipulates a modified response time for certain records such as the ones being requested above which are subject to the standard of ‘immediate access’ pursuant to N.J.S.A 47:1A-5(e). These should ordinarily be granted within 24 hours from when the request is received via email. If access to the records I am requesting will take longer than this amount of time, please contact me with information about when I might expect copies or the ability to inspect the requested records.

It is my expectation that my personal information nor the fact that this request was entered not be shared with anyone else other than the custodian of records other than those needed in order to process said request.

If you deny any or all of this request, please cite each specific exemption you feel justifies the refusal to release the information and notify me of the appeal procedures available to me under the law.

Thank you for your time in responding to this request.

Respectfully,


Requestor

Dear R,

Please accept this letter as the University Custodian of Records response
to your request for records pursuant to the Open Public Records Act

ATTN: Custodian of Records Under the New Jersey Open Public Records Act,
N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1 et seq., and New Jersey Common Law, I am requesting
immediate access to the following public records: All records to include
the name, full application- to include date of submission of said
application from the Recruitment, Onboarding, and Classification System
(ROCS) (with address and phone number redacted), resume, references (only
names), date of selection, date of notification and salary of the
individual selected for the position of ‘Disabilities Specialist’ within
the Rutgers Office of Employment Equity starting their employment in March
of 2021. I would like copies of these records sent to be via email in PDF
format if convenient. If there are any fees for these records, please
inform me if the cost will exceed $50. However, I would also like to
request a waiver of all fees in that the disclosure of the requested
information is in the public interest and will contribute significantly to
the public’s understanding of the appropriation of Rutgers University
funds which include New Jersey taxpayer revenue. This information is not
being sought for commercial purposes. The New Jersey Open Public Records
Act stipulates a modified response time for certain records such as the
ones being requested above which are subject to the standard of ‘immediate
access’ pursuant to N.J.S.A 47:1A-5(e). These should ordinarily be granted
within 24 hours from when the request is received via email. If access to
the records I am requesting will take longer than this amount of time,
please contact me with information about when I might expect copies or the
ability to inspect the requested records. It is my expectation that my
personal information nor the fact that this request was entered not be
shared with anyone else other than the custodian of records other than
those needed in order to process said request. If you deny any or all of
this request, please cite each specific exemption you feel justifies the
refusal to release the information and notify me of the appeal procedures
available to me under the law.Thank you for your time in responding to
this request. Respectfully,

Please also see the following information:

Please note, the University does not release employment applications.
Employment applications are “not disclosable pursuant to OPRA because it
is a personnel record which is exempt from disclosure pursuant to N.J.S.A.
47:1A-10, and Executive Order 26 (Gov. McGreevey 2002). See N.J.S.A.
47:1A-9(a)” Toscano v. NJ Dep’t of Human Serv., Div. of Mental Health

Comm’n, GRC Complain No. 2011-361 (March 2013).  
The University does not release reference information pursuant to OPRA's
privacy exemption. OPRA specifically places on the University “a
responsibility and an obligation to safeguard from public access a
citizen’s personal information with which it has been entrusted when
disclosure thereof would violate the citizen’s reasonable expectation of
privacy.” Serrano v. South Brunswick Twp., 358 N.J. Super. 352, 368 (App.
Div. 2003).

If your request has been denied, you may take your appeal to the New
Jersey Government Records Council (NJGRC), which has mediation and dispute
resolution procedures, or you may file a lawsuit with the New Jersey
Superior Court, as provided by N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1, et seq. Your rights of
appeal is provided with this letter at [3]Public Facing Pages of the
Rutgers University Open Public Records Request Center. You may also review

Ms. Battle,

Thank you for your response.

I believe that the University has records related to this successful candidate such as:

Date of application (in ROCS)
Date of selection
Date of notification

I'd ask that this information be compiled into a simple PDF or spreadsheet and provided. Given it is only three dates and the University has records of this the burden to do should be about 5-10 minutes. I want to make it clear I am amending my request in that I am not asking for the application itself but rather dates as listed above.

Upon receipt of the above I intend to close this request.

Yours sincerely,

Requestor
