Unfortunately, OIP’s website seems to have caught Computer Covid and our Training page is not properly loading, although the other pages seem to be healthy.  We have our computer doctors examining it and hope it will be resolved soon.

In the meantime, please remember to close out your agency’s fiscal year 2022 semiannual UIPA Record Request Log and send your semiannual Log reports to OIP by January 31, 2022.  All government agencies should close out the first half of the FY 2022 by saving a copy of their UIPA Record Request Log data for record requests received from July 1, 2021 through December 31, 2021.  Each department’s UIPA Coordinator should collect and provide to OIP a copy of each agency’s completed UIPA Record Request Log and Checklist for this semiannual period, which are due to OIP by January 31, 2021.

To save an electronic copy of their Semiannual Log, agencies should use the “save as” function and re-name it as their agency’s FY 2022 Semiannual Log.  Agencies should continue adding to their original Log for the rest of FY 2022.  After this fiscal year ends, annual data for the period from July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022 will be collected.  Training on the UIPA Record Request Log can be found on the UIPA Record Request Log Training page at oip.hawaii.gov.

Finally, OIP would like to remind agencies that the Governor’s emergency proclamation last week suspended the newly amended Sunshine Law’s in-person meeting requirement for remote meetings, but that there are no proclamations suspending UIPA deadlines.

Mahalo, and OIP wishes you a HAPPY, HEALTHY NEW YEAR!
