b)         In calculating its actual cost for reproducing records or for the use of the equipment of the Office of the Treasurer to reproduce records, the Office of the Treasurer will not include the costs of any search for and review of the records or other personnel costs associated with reproducing the records. (Section 6(b) of FOIA)

 

c)         In order to expedite the copying of records that the Office of the Treasurer cannot copy, due to the volume of the request or the operational needs of the Office of the Treasurer, in the timelines established in Section 651.401, the requester may provide, at the requester's expense, the copy machine, all necessary materials, and the labor to copy the public records at the Office of the Treasurer headquarters in Section 651.501, or at another location agreed to by both the Office of the Treasurer and the requester. No original record shall be removed from State-controlled premises except under constant supervision of the agency responsible for maintaining the record.
