U Memo 13-3
March 28, 2013
UH Fact Finders’ Report

Requester asked whether redactions made by the University of Hawaii (UH) to the Fact Finders’ Report (Report) produced for UH regarding a canceled concert deal were proper under Part II of the UIPA.

OIP found that the Report should have been publicly disclosed, with the sole exceptions of (1) the name of an individual making a personal loan, mentioned at page 8 of the Report and in Attachment 44, and (2) a description of the medical condition the concert promoter suffered from, mentioned at paragraph 78 of the Report.

OIP recommended that before the Committee provides the correctly redacted Report to record requester Hawaii News Now, that the Committee return the Report to UH so that UH can redo the redaction as provided for in OIP’s memorandum opinion.
