Aloha.

OIP Opinion Letter 07-07 (written by the current acting director of the OIP, Cathy Takase) says that

―OIP further notes that, pursuant to statute, DOH itself discloses certain information in the vital records it maintains, and, therefore, individuals would not have a significant privacy interest in that information. Specifically, the statute provides that ‗[i]ndex data consisting of name and sex of registrant, type of vital event and other such information as the director may authorize shall be made available to the public.‘ Haw. Rev. Stat. 338-18 (Supp. 2006). According to its director, DOH creates a daily list of the vital statistics records it receives and the public may inspect. The daily list consists of the name and sex of the registrant and the type of vital event.

Pursuant to UIPA, I request an electronic copy of the daily lists of vital statistics for each day August 4-12, 1961. I prefer to receive them by e-mail to (redacted) .

Thank you.

Nellie

    ” DOH creates a daily list of the vital statistics records it receives and the public may inspect.”

      They say they don’t have them any more. The retention schedule says they don’t have to keep them.

      So far they have refused to say whether those documents are bound in a book somewhere and archived. They are supposed to tell us who has custody of the records if we ask for something that exists but they don’t have, but that might not include the state archives.

    […] Now OIP is leaving HRS 338-18 rulings up to the DOH. All DOH responses contain deceptions #1&2, including disobeying their own rules for non-certified abbreviated copies of birth, marriage, and death certificates.  They deny that documents exist which are required by law, such as descriptions of their forms,  procedures,  and instructions which are mandated in HRS 91, etc..
