California Secretary of State CPRA request log for 2018

Ben Welsh filed this request with the California Secretary of State of California.


From: Ben Welsh

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

A copy of the Secretary of State's California Public Records Act request logs for calendar year 2018. These logs should include a request date, description of records requested, requester organization (if applicable) and current status of the requests.

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 calendar days, as the statute requires.

Dear Mr. Welsh:

Thank you for contacting the Secretary of State to request a copy of the catalogue of enterprise systems complied by our office to comply with SB 272 of 2015. You have also requested a copy of the Secretary of State's Public Records Act request log for 2018.

California law, including the California Public Records Act, permits the Secretary of State to charge fees for providing copies of its records. The fee is $1.00 for the first page and $0.50 for each page thereafter. However, we are able to provide the attached electronic document responsive to your request for the PRA log at no charge to you.

As for your request for a catalogue of enterprise systems pursuant to SB 272, this statute (codified in Government Code section 6270.5) applies only to local agencies and does not apply to the Secretary of State. Therefore, we have nothing responsive to this portion of your request.

We hope this information is helpful to you. If you have questions about this or another matter related to the Secretary of State's office, please contact us again.
