OPEN RECORDS REQUESTS

OKLAHOMA HOUSING FINANCE AGENCY
OPEN RECORDS POLICY AND FEE STRUCTURE

An Open Records Request is a request made pursuant to the Oklahoma Open Records Act at 51 O.S. § 24A et. seq.

The Open Records Act is a series of laws designed to guarantee that the public has access to public records of governmental bodies in Oklahoma. The Oklahoma Housing Finance Agency believes in transparency and supports the public’s right to know. The form and process listed below was developed to ensure compliance with the Open Records Act and facilitate the public's right to access and review our records.

Open Records Act requests for records from the Oklahoma Housing Finance Agency shall be made using the Open Records Request form. Requests are processed in accordance with the provisions of the Open Records Act.

Requests may be subject to fees for the costs of record searches and copies in accordance with the fee schedule.

Fee Schedule for Reproduction of Records

A charge for providing copies of public records is authorized by state law. OHFA’s fee schedule for reproducing records is as follows:

  • There will be no charge for up to 100 pages.
  • Copy jobs that include more than 100 pages will be assessed $0.25 for each additional page over 100.
  • There will be a charge of $1.00 per page for certified copies.
  • There will be no charge for records that are transmitted digitally.
  • OHFA reserves the right to provide records via electronic media such as a flash or thumb drive. In this instance, OHFA will provide the electronic media device and a fee will be charged for its cost.

Fee Schedule for Records Subject to Additional Recovery Costs

OHFA reserves the right to recover the actual cost of record search and copying, including labor, if the information requested is not readily available or requires an extended amount of time to retrieve. If you submit a request that is subject to additional recovery costs, you will be provided with an estimate before work begins.

  • $25 per hour fee for commercial requests or those that cause excessive disruption of office functions (OHFA defines an “excessive disruption” request as one that requires more than two hours of actual employee time to compile).

All fees for copies and research, including delivery fees, must be paid by check or money order, payable to OHFA, before the records are provided.  You will be provided with an estimate before work begins.
