When the department makes a decision on an access application to give access to a document that does not contain personal information of the applicant, and the applicant has accessed the document within the access period (40 business days), the department is required to include in the disclosure log a copy of the document, the name of the applicant, and if access to the document was sought for the benefit or use by an entity other than the applicant, the name of the other entity. If the applicant does not access the document within the access period then the details of the document and information about the way in which the document may be accessed will be included in the disclosure log.

  • is confidential communication by a person other than the agency
  • is protected under contract
