Processing of public records requestsInspection of public records.

(1) Requesting inspection of records. The process for requesting inspection of public records is the same as for requesting copies of public records.
(2) Providing records for inspection.
(a) Public records will be available for inspection and copying only during normal business hours of OFM, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., excluding legal holidays, and when staff are available to assist the requestor. Records must be inspected at the offices of OFM.
(b) Consistent with other demands, OFM shall endeavor to promptly provide space to inspect public records. No member of the public may remove a document from the viewing area or disassemble or alter any document. Inspections will be conducted in accordance with the requirement that agencies protect the requested records from damage or disorganization. The requestor will indicate which, if any, documents he or she wishes the agency to copy.
(c) The requestor must claim or review the assembled records within thirty days of OFM's notification to him or her that the records are available for inspection or copying. If a requestor fails to claim or review the assembled records within thirty days, the public records officer will close the request and indicate to the requestor that OFM has closed the request.
(d) When the request is for a large number of records, the public records officer may provide access for inspection in installments.
