OAR 603-001-0170
Public Interest Test

In determining whether sufficient public interest for a fee waiver is demonstrated, the department will consider:


The requester’s identity, public interest affiliation, and contact information;


The purpose for which the requester intends to use the information;


The character of the information;


Whether the requested information is already in the public domain;


Whether the requester can demonstrate the ability to disseminate the information to the public;


The requester’s inability to pay, but this fact alone is not a sufficient basis for a fee waiver;


If the requester seeks technical information, a showing that the requester is able to understand that information and disseminate it to the public in a meaningful form;


Any other additional information provided by the requester that would be helpful for the department in evaluating the request for a fee waiver or fee reduction. Appendix 1
