Code § 2.2-3704(A)(4).  If additional time, beyond the seven-work-day period, is needed in order to fulfill your request, we will make reasonable efforts to reach an agreement with you for records production as required under FOIA.  Va. Code §§ 2.2-3700 and 2.2-3704(C). Additionally, UVA may recover its actual costs incurred in processing your request.  This includes costs incurred in accessing, duplicating, supplying, or searching for the records you have requested, including, but not limited to, the costs of reviewing records to determine whether or not they are public records responsive to your request, exempt under FOIA, or may not lawfully be disclosed pursuant to some other provision of law (See Va. Code §2.2-3704(F)). If costs are likely to exceed $200, as permitted by FOIA, we do require advanced payment prior to fulfilling a request.  Va. Code § 2.2-3704(H).  If costs are likely to be less than $200, actual costs incurred by UVA will be billed to you after you receive your response.  In either case, I will let you know of any costs in advance. Thank you for contacting this office.  Please let me know if you have any questions. Sincerely, Freedom of Information Act Officer University of Virginia www.virginia.edu/foia
