“Document(s)” means any and all written, typed, printed, recorded or graphic matter, however produced, reproduced or stored, whether an original or a copy, and whether prepared, published or released by any person or entity, including but not limited to letters, reports, agreements, correspondence, intra-office or inter-office correspondence, telegrams, minutes or records of meetings, reports or summaries, expressions or statements, lists, drafts and revisions, invoices, receipts, original and preliminary notes, sketches, records, ledgers, contracts, bills of lading, bills, inventories, financial data, maps, memoranda, accounting and financial records, diaries, journals, calendars, statements, work papers, videotapes, photographs, pamphlets, brochures, advertisements, trade letters, press releases, drawings, recaps, tables, articles, summaries of conversations, computer cards, tapes, diskettes, or other means of electronically or magnetically maintaining information, and printouts.

The term “document(s)” also includes electronically stored data from which information can be obtained either directly or by translation through detection devices or readers; any such document is to be produced in a reasonably legible and usable form. The term “document(s)” includes all drafts of a document and all copies that differ in any respect from the original, including any notation, underlining, marking, or information not on the original. The term also includes information stored in, or accessible through, computer or other information retrieval systems (including any computer archives or back-up systems), together with instructions and all other materials necessary to use or interpret such data compilations.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days, as the statute requires.

From: Office of the Governor - Alaska

Mr. Horn:

I am unable to to this process this request as it is overbroad and extremely nonspecific:

1. This request, were I able to address it, primarily falls under 40.25.115, Electronic Records Production.
2. The non-specificity of Divisions, Departments, or employees that may need to be searched creates an insurmountable obstacle for any sort of relevant searches.
3. There is no timeframe specified.
4. The Office of the Governor is not the custodian of public records for other Executive Branch agencies.
