The NJDOT is in receipt of your OPRA Request # C130467. Upon further review, your request is overbroad. Government agencies are required to disclose only identifiable government records that are specifically described in the request. Gannett N.J. Partners v. Middlesex, 379 N.J. Super. 205, 212 (App. Div. 2005). Neither OPRA nor the common law countenances open-ended searches of agency files, MAG Entertainment, LLC v. Div. of Alcoholic Bev Control, 375 N.J. Super. 534, 549 (App. Div. 2005), or permits a blanket request for every document an agency has on file on a topic, Bent v. Twp. of Stafford, 381 N.J. Super. 30, 37 (App. Div. 2005). OPRA does not require that custodians conduct research when responding to OPRA requests. See Lagerkvist v. Office of Governor of State, 443 N.J. Super. 230, 237 (App. Div. 2015) (citing MAG Entm't, LLC, 375 N.J. Super. at 546-49). "A requestor is obliged to identify the documents sought with some particularity, thus enabling government to maintain transparency while completing necessary day-to-day functions." Ibid. "A records request must be well defined so that the custodian knows precisely what records are sought. The request should not require the records custodian to undertake a subjective analysis to understand the nature of the request. Seeking particular information from the custodian is permissible; expecting the custodian to do research is not." Paff v. Galloway Twp., 229 N.J. 340, 355 (2017).

Therefore, in order to proceed with this request, we require further information. Please provide the descriptions of the specific records you are seeking such as correspondence, inspection reports, etc. For all records please include a time frame. If you are seeking correspondence, please provide the sender/recipient, subject matter/key words to be searched, and date range.

Please be advised that this request cannot be processed until clarification is received. Please provide a response by July 26, 2018 or this request will be closed as overbroad.

Please contact us if you have any questions about the above.
