Reference: Rutgers Open Public Records Request, #R005975-062220

 

Dear ,

Please accept this letter as the University Custodian of Records response
to your request for records pursuant to the Open Public Records Act
(“OPRA”). On June 22, 2020, this office received your request for the
following:

“Dear Rutgers University,

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

Please note that the University has reviewed your request and are
determiend that, as currently written, it 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 note that you may clarify your request or submit narrower search
terms by including a time frame, or specifying precisely what records you
are seeking. In order for our office to process the request, please
provide a response to the above clarification. If we do not receive a
clarification within seven (7) business days, we will consider this
request withdrawn and closed.

You may contact the Office of the Custodian of Records through your
account under "My Request Center" at the [1]Rutgers Open Public Records
Center, phone, or via the regular mail to: Rutgers, The State University
of New Jersey, University Custodian of Records, University Ethics and
Compliance, 335 George Street, Suite 3300, New Brunswick, NJ 08901.
