Custodians should fulfill a request as soon as possible, but not later than seven (7) business days after the request is received, provided that the record is currently available and not in storage or archived. N.J.S.A. 47:1A-5(i). Day One (1) is the day following the custodian’s receipt of the request.

OPRA requires that custodians must ordinarily grant immediate access to budgets, bills, vouchers, contracts (including collective negotiations agreements and individual employment contracts), and public employee salary and overtime information. N.J.S.A. 47:1A-5(e).

Custodians may seek extensions of time beyond the seven (7) business day deadline for legitimate reasons (e.g. the record is in use or in storage, request involves an extraordinary expenditure of time). N.J.S.A. 47:1A-5(i). Custodians must request an extension from the requestor in writing, within the statutorily mandated seven (7) business days, and provide an anticipated deadline date upon which the records will be provided.
