Communications

From: Todd Feathers

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Pennsylvania Right to Know Act, I hereby request the following records:

1) A list, database, and/or spreadsheet detailing all data dictionaries held or used by the Department of Health.

If your agency does not have a central record of its data dictionaries, I will accept copies of the data dictionaries themselves.

A data dictionary, sometimes called a data library, describes the data inputs for a system or database. I have attached an example data dictionary for your reference and to assist in locating responsive records.

I ask that all fees be waived as I am a working journalist and intend to use the requested records to publish articles in the public interest. In the event that you choose to impose fees, I request a detailed breakdown of the costs, including the hourly wages of any personnel assigned to process the request and estimates of how many hours the request will take them to process.

Should you choose to deny access to or redact records responsive to this request, I ask that you provide a detailed explanation of your reasoning--as required by law--citing the specific statutes and case law on which each decision is based.

I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Todd Feathers

From: Pennsylvania Department of Health
