The University Department of Purchasing and Travel adopts the public records policy published in the Bylaws of the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning.  Public records requests must be in writing and specify the documents requested and such requests should be forwarded to the General Counsel which will facilitate a timely response.  University personnel receiving such requests should immediately forward them to the General Counsel Office.  Requests will be responded to within 14 days, unless objected to and so long as actual costs for complying with the requests are paid by the requester prior to receipt of the documents.  Questions regarding public records requests should be directed to the General Counsel.
