Let the sun shine in

Posted By on Fri, Apr 27, 2007 at 3:35 PM

Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has issued his opinion on what information from the state employee computerized database should be released to the Associated Press. The custodian of the records, the Office of Personnel Management, had said that this information SHOULD be released:

Agency Number;
Agency Name;
Employee First, Middle and Last Name;
Job Title;
Latest Hire Date;
Birth Date;
Current Salary
Pay Basis (Hourly or Annual);
Work Address;
Work City; and
Work Phone

It said this information should NOT be released:

Social Security Number;
Home Address;
Employee Personnel Number; and
Bonus Information.

McDaniel's opinion agrees with the Office of Personnel Management except that he said the Arkansas FOI provides that birth dates not be provided and the bonus information should be provided. He also noted that identities of undercover officers should be protected.

AP is apparently gathering the information for a national project.
