(5) When the Oregon State Treasury asks a person requesting public records to clarify a request or to provide additional information, the person requesting the public records must provide the clarification or additional information within 60 days.

The confirmation must be received by the Oregon State Treasury within 10 business days of the date sent to the person. If the person fails to confirm the cost estimate, the Oregon State Treasury will close the request and take no further action.
(7)(a) The Oregon State Treasury will send the person requesting public records an itemized invoice of the actual cost to be responsive to the request. The person requesting public records must pay the invoice in full within 60 days. If the person requesting public records does not pay within 6o days, the Oregon State Treasury will close the request and take no further action.
