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.

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of charges within ten business days of the date the College sent the estimate, otherwise the request is considered withdrawn by the Requestor.
