Public Records

Public Records

Wisconsin Public Records Law Wis. Stats. § 19.31 et seq., requires UW-Eau Claire to permit inspection and copying of public records, to adopt and post guidelines about how the public may inspect and copy these records, and to designate a custodian of records to process record requests.

Custodian

UW-Eau Claire has designated Teresa E. O'Halloran, Assistant to the Chancellor for Affirmative Action, as its Custodian of Public Records in order to meet its obligations under Wisconsin public record laws.

Requests

Members of the public may obtain information and access to or copies of public records by making a request of the Records Custodian during regular office hours, Monday through Friday, 8:30 - 4:30, excluding holidays.

Teresa O'Halloran

Requests for records may be made orally or in writing.  The Legal Custodian's office has a form available for your use in making a written request.  Requests will be processed as soon as practicable and without delay.

Costs

UW-Eau Claire may bill requesters $.25 for each copy made, but will not charge reproduction costs for electronic copies of records that exist in electronic format.  There may be additional charge if a request asks for specialized documents (such as photographs).  A location fee may be charged if the cost to locate the record(s) in question is $50.00 or more.  Location fees will be calculated at the hourly salary and benefit rate for the lowest-paid employee capable of performing the task.  No fee will be charged for the cost of redaction or removal of confidential information.  Requests that exceed a total cost of $10.00 may require prepayment.
