COLORADO OPEN RECORDS ACT (CORA) REQUESTS
It is the policy of the State Personnel Board that upon receipt of a CORA request, the Board Director will assess and determine if the request requires more than one hour of staff time to locate or produce records. If it requires more than one hour of staff time, the Board will charge the requestor for all copying expenses or staff time in accordance with sections 24-72-205(5)(a) and (6)(a), C.R.S.
Before fulfilling a substantial request, the Board will provide a cost estimate to the requestor that includes the estimated time for staff to search for, retrieve, redact, assemble, and transmit the records. The requestor must approve the cost estimate before the agency will begin work on fulfilling the request. The Board may require an advance deposit of the expected cost before it will begin completing the request.
The timeframe for completion of the request is put on hold between providing the cost estimate to the requestor and the requestor approving the cost estimate or submitting the advance deposit, whichever is applicable.
Costs associated with a request must be paid in full before the Board will produce the records.
