Freedom of Information Act



The Virginia Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), located § 2.2-3700 et. seq. of the Code of Virginia, 保障联邦公民和媒体代表能够查阅公共机构持有的公共记录, public officials, and public employees.

公共记录是任何文字或记录——不管它是否是纸质记录, an electronic file, an audio or video recording, or any other format — that is prepared or owned by, or in the possession of a public body or its officers, employees or agents in the transaction of public business. All public records are presumed to be open, and may only be withheld if a specific, statutory exemption applies.

《博彩平台网址大全》的政策指出,《博彩平台网址大全》的目的是提高所有人对政府活动的认识. In furthering this policy, FOIA requires that the law be interpreted liberally, in favor of access, 任何允许保留公共记录的豁免都必须被狭义地解释.

Your FOIA Rights

  • 你有权查阅或索取公共记录的副本,或两者兼而有之.
  • 您有权要求预先预估所请求记录的任何费用.  公共机构必须以书面通知请求人,公共机构可收取合理的费用,但不得超过查阅资料所产生的实际成本, duplicating, supplying, 或者搜索所请求的记录,并询问请求者是否希望在提供所请求的记录之前请求成本估算.
  • If you believe that your FOIA rights have been violated, 你可以向地区法院或巡回法院提交请愿书,要求遵守《博彩平台网址大全》. 或者,您也可以联系《博彩平台网址大全》理事会,以获得不具约束力的咨询意见.

Making a request for records from Wytheville Community College

  • You may request records by U.S. Mail, fax, e-mail, in person, or over the phone. FOIA does not require that your request be in writing, 你也不需要特别说明你是根据《博彩平台网址大全》要求记录的. 
    • From a practical perspective, 把你的请求写成书面形式,对你和收到你请求的人都有帮助. This allows you to create a record of your request. 它也给了我们一个明确的声明,说明你需要什么样的记录, so that there is no misunderstanding over a verbal request. 但是,如果您选择不以书面形式提出,我们不能拒绝回应您的《博彩平台网址大全》请求.
  • 您的请求必须以“合理的特异性”确定您正在查找的记录.” This is a common-sense standard. It does not refer to or limit the volume or number of records that you are requesting; instead, 它要求你足够具体,以便我们能够识别和定位你正在寻找的记录.
  • Your request must ask for existing records or documents. FOIA gives you a right to inspect or copy records; it does not apply to a situation where you are asking general questions about the work of WCC, 也不要求WCC创建一个不存在的记录.
  • 你可以选择接收任何格式的电子记录 Wytheville Community College in the regular course of business. 
    • For example, if you are requesting records maintained in an Excel database, you may elect to receive those records electronically, via e-mail or on a computer disk, or to receive a printed copy of those records
  • If we have questions about your request, 请配合工作人员的努力,澄清您正在寻找的记录类型, 或者试图就一个大请求的响应达成一个合理的协议. Making a FOIA request is not an adversarial process, 但我们可能需要与您讨论您的请求,以确保我们了解您正在寻找的记录.
