PR16-24 GoLocal Prov v. Rhode Island Commerce Corporation No Violation

The Complainant alleged that the Rhode Island Commerce Corporation ("RICC") failed to comply with R.I. Gen. Laws 38-2-3 (e) by failing to respond to a March 24, 2016 APRA request within ten (10) business days. Upon receipt of a records request, a public body is obligated to respond in some capacity within ten (10) business days, either by producing responsive documents, denying the request with a reason(s), or extending the time period necessary to comply. The RICC responded on April 7, 2016, and thus we concluded that the RICC responded to the Complainant in a timely manner.
