House Administration 3/12/15
The General Assembly has ended, the current status is the final status.
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 29 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT.
Currently FOIA applies to their Boards of Trustees and their documents relating to the expenditure of public funds. Also under current law, as of July 1, 2015, the universities will have to indicate on any request for proposal or other competitive bidding solicitation when it relates to the proposed use of public funds, regardless of amount of percentage. This Act removes the exemption from the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and thus fully applies FOIA to the University of Delaware and Delaware State University, including the Board of Trustees.
Takes effect upon being signed into law
