Freedom of Information Law (FOIL)

As a state agency, SUNY College at Old Westbury is subject to the Freedom of Information Law. We have posted the regulations, as required, on our website, and at the Office of Human Resources.

A person, outside agency or group may request information from the College by writing either of our Records Access Officers, Michael Kinane or William Kimmins. The request must reasonably describe the record or records that are being requested, and be as specific as possible (i.e., indicate dates, titles, specific files and designations, as appropriate). Reasonable fees may be charged for duplication of materials or for clerical assistance.

On May 3, 2005, Governor Pataki signed into law an amendment to New York's Freedom of Information Law. The Committee on Open Government has summarized the law as follows:

"When an agency receives a request, §89(3) of the Freedom of Information Law requires that it has five business days to grant or deny access in whole or in part, or if more time is needed, to acknowledge the receipt of the request in writing. The acknowledgement must include an approximate date that indicates when an agency will grant or deny the request. If more than twenty additional business days are needed, the agency must provide an explanation and a date certain within which it will grant or deny the request in whole or in part. That date, too, must be reasonable in consideration of the facts (i.e., the volume or complexity of the request, the need to search for records, or the obligation to review records to determine rights of access)."

Please direct questions or FOIL requests to the College's Records Access Officer:

Michael Kinane
SUNY College at Old Westbury
P.O. Box 210
Old Westbury, NY 11568-0210
kinanem@oldwestbury.edu

Any person, group, or agency who feels that the College has denied a request unfairly may appeal within 30 days. Appeals must be in writing, stating the reason, and should be sent to Ms. Geraldine Gauthier, Office of the University Counsel, State University Plaza, Albany, New York 12246.
