What To Expect
The Department of Veterans Affairs strives to respond as promptly as possible to all public records requests received which are consistent with the demands of our agency’s functions as determined by state law.
The nature of your request will dictate how promptly the Department of Veterans Affairs responds. If your request very clearly identifies a specific, discrete document you are looking for, we will respond more quickly than if your request requires substantial staff time to process. A request will require substantial staff time to process if it requires difficulty in identifying and retrieving documents or taking measures to redact or otherwise withhold legally protected information.
In addition, the Department of Veterans Affairs is permitted by state law to charge reasonable fees in connection with processing public records requests. We will notify you in advance of the fees you likely will incur as a result of your request.
