UIPA Memo Decision 10-2
August 19, 2009
Investigation Reports

A member of the public asked whether the Department of Education (“DOE”) properly denied his request for DOE’s records pertaining to his civil rights complaints on behalf of his son, under part III of the UIPA.

OIP found that the DOE may redact information which would reveal the identity of a source who furnished information under an express or implied promise of confidentiality. However, the DOE must disclose information provided by the Requester, any information about the Requester’s son, and any other records generally available to the public.
