U Memo 11-16
June 7, 2011
Unable to Locate Records

Requester asked whether the Office of the Mayor, County of Hawaii, properly denied Requester’s request for a 26-page fax under the UIPA. He had requested copies of the fax, a telephone message slip, and a phone log, which were all dated June 4, 2009. Requester was provided copies of the message slip and phone log, but was unable to locate the 26-page fax.

The Office of the Mayor, County of Hawaii, made a reasonable search for the 26-page fax because it made a search reasonably calculated to uncover all relevant documents, and therefore had complied with the UIPA.
