Dear New Jersey Economic Development Authority,
This is a request for public records made under OPRA and the common law right of access. I am not required to fill out an official form. Please acknowledge receipt of this message.
Agency previously produced a spreadsheet dated 5/26/2022. Requestor seeks an updated spreadsheet showing the current status for the grant applications listed below. In addition, requestor seeks date application was sent out for review, date due back from review, date application actually completed review, current status.
Hello Edythe. I don't have a record of sending you a spreadsheet dated
5/26/22. Can you clarify?

Dear Marcus Saldutti,
You are correct. I found the spreadsheet elsewhere on OPRAMachine. The file name you used was SBIMPROVGR OPRA Request 5 24 22 5 26 2022 8 45 46.xls.
I am asking to see an update and the additional information noted in the thread below but only for a small subsection of the grants.
This request remains in process, and at this time we will require a two-week extension for completion.

Dear Shamira Alvarez,
Based on the small number of applications for which records are sought amd the fact the record has already been identified for another requestor, the two week extension is reasonable.
I still maintain that this information should be publicly available without an OPRA request.
