From: KORA Officer

Dear Ms. Fink:

This communication is an initial response to your request under the Kansas Open Records Act (KORA).

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) KORA Officer has received your KORA request. Your request identifier is provided in the subject line of this communication. Please refer to that identifier in any future correspondence pertaining to your request.

If KORA applies to your request, your request will be forwarded for processing. KDHE may not be able to immediately grant access to or disclose requested records due to the number of records requests KDHE receives and because KDHE must review every received request. If permitted by Kansas law, KDHE will generally grant access to or disclose the existing public record(s) to which your request applies within ten business days after the date of this communication. However, federal and/or state law may limit or prohibit access to or disclosure of records or otherwise exempt records from public access or disclosure.

KDHE may charge and require advance payment of a fee for providing access to or disclosing records in order to recoup request fulfillment costs including, but not limited to, the cost(s) of staff time and computer services required to fulfill your request. You will receive notice if advance payment is required or if the cost(s) of fulfilling your request exceed(s) the initially estimated or requested fee.

I apologize for the delay in responding to your KORA request, the MuckRock website has the incorrect contact information for the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. Consequently, your emails will being sent to an email address that is not monitored daily. Once the emails were discovered last week, I attempted to inform MuckRock of their error and ask them to resend your request but have not heard back from them. I do hope this will reach you promptly.

Please contact KDHE using the below information if you have questions.

Sincerely,
