I am a private citizen seeking information concerning your public official surety bond, or the Errors & Omissions (E&O), and or the Duty of Care policy that you are required by the state of Rhode Island to obtain before swearing the oath of office.
Rhode Island § 38-2-1 Access to Public Records
The public’s right to access to public records and the individual’s right to dignity and privacy are both recognized to be principles of the utmost importance in a free society. The purpose of this chapter is to facilitate public access to public records. It is also the intent of this chapter to protect from disclosure information about particular individuals maintained in the files of public bodies when disclosure would constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.
42-20-9. Bonding of officials.
The director of administration may determine what directors or heads of departments and subordinate officials shall be bonded, either by a surety bond covering an individual employee or by position schedule bonds covering any group or groups of employees or positions or both. All clerks shall be bonded either by a surety bond covering an individual employee or by position schedule bonds covering any group or groups of employees or positions, or both.
Public Official Surety Bond requests fall under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. § 552, The Sunshine Act 5 U.S.C. § 552b, Rhode Island § 38-2-1 Access to Public Records by law you are obligated to supply me with this information.
It is public knowledge in the State of Rhode Island that all school boards in the state and the superintendents are required to be bonded, carry a surety liability insurance policy, an Errors & Omissions, or a Duty of Care policy.
