Processing of public records requests—Electronic records.
(1) Requesting electronic records. The process for requesting electronic public records is the same as for requesting paper public records.

When a requestor requests records in an electronic format, the public records officer will provide the nonexempt records or portions of such records that are reasonably locatable in an electronic format that is used by the agency and is generally commercially available, or in a format that is reasonably translatable from the format in which the agency keeps the record. Costs for providing electronic records are governed by WAC 44-14-07003

With the consent of the requestor, the agency may provide customized access under RCW 43.105.280
if the record is not reasonably locatable or not reasonably translatable into the format requested. The (agency) may charge a fee consistent with RCW 43.105.280
for such customized access.
