Requests for public records.

In accordance with the requirements of RCW 42.56.100 that agencies prevent unreasonable invasions of privacy, protect public records from damage or disorganization, and prevent excessive interference with essential functions of the agency, public records are only obtainable by members of the public when those members of the public comply with the following procedures:
(1) Any person wishing to request access to public records of Lake Washington Institute of Technology, or seeking assistance in making such a request should contact the public records officer of the college at:
Public Records Officer
Attn.: Administrative Services
Lake Washington Institute of Technology
11605 132nd Avenue N.E.
Kirkland, WA 98034
(2) A public records request must be for identifiable records. A request for all or substantially all records prepared, owned, used, or retained by the college is not a valid request for identifiable records, provided that a request for all records regarding a particular topic or containing a particular keyword or name shall not be considered a request for all of the college's records.
(3) A request should be made in writing on the Public Records Request form, or by letter, fax, or email addressed to the public records officer. The request should include the following information:
(a) The name of the person requesting the record;
(b) Address of the requestor;
(c) Other contact information, including telephone number and any email address;
(d) The date and time of day of the request;
(e) Identification of the public records adequate for the public records officer or designee to locate the records;
(f) If the matter requested is referenced within the current index maintained by the public records officer, a reference to the requested records as it is described in such current index;
(g) If the requested matter is not identifiable by reference to the current index, an appropriate description of the record requested.
(4) In all cases in which a member of the public is making a request, it shall be the obligation of the public records officer, or person to whom the request is made, to assist the member of the public in identifying the public records requested.
(5) The college may deny a bot request that is one of multiple requests from the requestor to the college within a twenty-four-hour period, if the college establishes that responding to the multiple requests would cause excessive interference with other essential functions of the college. For these purposes, "bot request" means a request for public records that the college reasonably believes was automatically generated by a computer program or script.
