Dear Mr. Szuberla: ​

This is to acknowledge your California Public Records Act (CPRA) request
below. Your request has been forwarded to appropriate campus offices and a
search for responsive documents is currently underway. Records identified
as responsive to your request will be reviewed, and made available for your
access, in accordance with relevant law and University policy.

Please note that there is no central repository for all University records.
The identification and collection of potentially responsive records is only
the first step in the CPRA response process. The collected records must be
reviewed by this office to ensure that they are in fact responsive to your
request and to assess whether any legal privileges or exemptions from
disclosure are applicable and whether redactions may be required to protect
individuals’ rights to privacy. Please also bear in mind that we are
concurrently fulfilling numerous other requests, many of which were
received before yours and that we generally process requests in the order
in which they are received. The current timeframe for fulfillment of most
requests is 8 weeks, although this may vary due to the nature and
complexity of the request.

Although the requested records have not yet been fully identified, based on
the terms of the request, we have made a preliminary determination that the
request likely does seek disclosable records within the possession of the
University. This office will provide you with a status update after the
requested records have been thoroughly reviewed.

Please note that CPRA allows agencies to make records available “upon
payment of fees covering direct costs of duplication.” Government Code
section 6253(b). The University reserves its right to recoup duplication
costs. The charge is $0.20 per page for copies, and payment is required
before release of the records. Once we obtain an accurate page count, we
will inform you of the anticipated total cost.

Regards,

Liane Ko
Public Records Coordinator
