Dear Mr. Del Ponte:

This letter is in response to your recent correspondence, which was received by the California Department of Justice (DOJ), in which you sought records pursuant to the Public Records Act (PRA) as set forth in Government Code section 6250 et seq.

Specifically, you requested that we provide the following: "All available records (including consumer complaints, memos, communications, and investigations) containing the following non-case sensitive phrases:
- Conversion Therapy,
- Sexual Orientation Change Efforts (SOCE),
- Ex-Gay Therapy,
- Reparative Therapy, and/or
- Same-Sex Attraction (SSA) Therapy."

Agencies are permitted to extend the date for responding to a public records request for fourteen days beyond the original 10-day deadline for responding under specified circumstances. (§ 6253, subd. (c).) As your request was received by this office on May 31, 2018, the time established for the original response is June 11, 2018. Fourteen days beyond this date is June 25, 2018.

Agencies may invoke the extension for several reasons, which may be summarized as follows:

1. The need to search for and collect records from field offices or other facilities that are separate from the office processing the request.

2. The need to search for, collect, and appropriately examine a voluminous amount of separate and distinct records which are demanded in a single request.

3. The need for consultation, which shall be conducted with all practicable speed, with another agency having a substantial interest in the determination of the request or among two or more components of the agency having substantial subject matter interest therein. (§ 6253, subd. (c).)

In this instance, an extension is needed to consult with two or more components of our agency having substantial subject matter interest therein.
