Information Practices

The Information Practices department provides three major services to the campus community: public records request processing, subpoena processing and records management consulting services.

Requests for Public Records and Employee Records: Information Practices coordinates the University’s response to requests for public records made under the California Public Records Act (CPRA), along with requests from current and former employees for records specifically relating to themselves pursuant to the Information Practices Act (IPA). General responsibilities of the Information Practices Team are to:

  • Receive and log requests for records. 
  • Notify offices on campus that a request was received.
  • Collect documents from custodial offices on campus and the Medical Center.
  • Review collected documents for responsiveness and exempt information, and redact where warranted.
  • Release documents to requesters.
