We write in response to your June 13, 2019 request for information pursuant to the Rhode Island Access to Public Records Act (APRA). Your specific request is noted below along with our corresponding response.
Attached to this email is a Rhode Island Access to Public Records Act Request looking for outstanding and stale dated check information from the State of Rhode Island.
I am looking for the list that comes out in July of 2018
As we discussed, could you please let me know when it will be released.
Specifically, I am seeking records of outstanding and stale dated checks that were originally issued to companies, organizations and individuals by The State of Rhode Island. For each of these unnegotiated checks, I am requesting the name of the corporate vendor, organization or individual, the check number, the date of issue and dollar amount. I am interested in reviewing records of outstanding checks for all available years.
Please see the attached document responsive to your request. Please note that pursuant to Rhode Island General Laws § 38-2-3(h), the Office of the General Treasurer is not required to reorganize, consolidate, or compile data not maintained by the Office in the form requested. We have received your request for the list that comes out in 2019. The response to this request will be processed in the ordinary course of business.
If you contend you have been denied access to public records, pursuant to R.I.G.L. § 38-2-8, you may appeal this decision to Amy Crane, General Counsel, 50 Service Avenue, 2nd Floor, Warwick, RI 02886. You may also file a complaint with the Department of the Attorney General, 150 South Main Street, Providence, RI 02903 or the Rhode Island Superior Court of the county where the records are maintained.
