The Office of the Attorney General has adopted rules for use by each governmental body in determining charges under the TPIA. A detail of all cost rules may be found in the Texas Public Information Act Handbook. Listed below are some of the most common charges for requests for public information.
*Each side that has recorded information is considered a page.
**For requests of 50 or more pages only.
If the estimated costs exceed $40.00, the requester will be provided a written estimate of the charges before the work is performed. Request resulting in charges of $100 or more will require a deposit of 50% of the total cost before the work is performed. All charges must be paid in full before release of the information.
The Requestor must respond to a written estimate of charges within ten business days of the date the College sent the estimate, otherwise the request is considered withdrawn by the Requestor.
