- OPRA "requires all requestors to submit written OPRA requests, preferrably on an agency's official OPRA records request form."
- The form must be signed .
- PLEASE BE SPECIFIC WITH THE INFORMATION YOU ARE REQUESTING . We will not be repsonsible for mis-interpreting your request.

New Jersey Council on Affordable Housing, 390 N.J.Super. 166, 180 (App. Div. 2007).
