Charges for Public Information

The Texas Facilities Commission charges for copies of public information in accordance with current laws and rules.  If charges will exceed $40 or will require programming or manipulation of data, the requestor is provided with a cost estimate or statement as required by either Section 552.231 or 552.2615 of the Texas Government Code, as applicable. The Texas Facilities Commission regularly utilizes Section 552.267, which provides for waiver or reduction of cost when in the public interest. Other governmental bodies are not charged for information unless such a request requires extensive programming time.  Employees are not charged for their own employment records. The Texas Facilities Commission generally waives charges of less than $20 to help ensure that members of the public have broad access to clearly public information. Additionally, individual members, agencies, and committees of the legislature are not charged for information to be used for legislative purposes, as provided by Section 552.264 of the Texas Government Code. (Cost Policy eff. 03/28/2008.)
