Location fees will be calculated at the hourly salary and benefit rate for the lowest-paid employee capable of performing the task. No fee will be charged for the cost of reviewing records for possible redaction or removal of confidential information.

Requests which exceed a total cost of $5.00 may require prepayment. All requests will be processed as soon as practicable and without delay.
