Some or all of the documents within an application may be fully released, partially released or not released as part of the original or disclosure log decision making process. Under the RTI Act, information must be deleted from any document if the publication:

  • is prevented by law
  • would be defamatory
  • would unreasonably invade a person's privacy
  • is confidential communication by a person other than the agency
  • is protected under contract, or
