Material Exempt from Public Disclosure
The Public Records Act provides certain types of records and information are exempt from public disclosure. Where exempt information can be deleted from a record (redacted), the record will be provided without the exempt information. Whenever the OMWBE withholds all or part of a record, we will identify the applicable exemption on a log and provide to the requester.
