How the Public Access Counselors Office Determines Reasonable Time

from PAC Opinion 20-FC-87

Ind. Code § 5-14-3-3(b)(1)–(2). The term “reasonable time” is not defined by APRA; and thus, it falls to this office to make a determination on a case by case basis when a com-plaint is filed challenging timeliness.

In doing so, this office considers the following factors:

(1) the size of the public agency;
(2) the size of the request;
(3) the number of pending requests;
(4) the complexity of the request; and
(5) any other operational considerations or factor that may reasonably affect the public records process.
