Confidentiality and Inadmissibility of Mediation Communications

(1) The words and phrases used in this rule have the same meaning as given to them in ORS 36.110 and 36.234.

(2) Nothing in this rule affects any confidentiality created by other law. Nothing in this rule relieves a public body from complying with the Public Meetings Law, ORS 192.610 to 192.690. Whether or not they are confidential under this or other rules of the agency, mediation communications are exempt from disclosure under the Public Records Law to the extent provided in ORS 192.410 to 192.505.

(3) This rule applies only to mediations in which the agency is a party or is mediating a dispute as to which the agency has regulatory authority. This rule does not apply when the agency is acting as the “mediator” in a matter in which the agency also is a party as defined in ORS 36.234.

(4) To the extent mediation communications would otherwise be compromise negotiations under ORS 40.190 (OEC Rule 408), those mediation communications are not admissible as provided in 40.190 (OEC Rule 408), notwithstanding any provisions to the contrary in section (9) of this rule.

(5) Mediations Excluded: Sections (6)-(10) of this rule do not apply to:

(a) Mediation of workplace interpersonal disputes involving the interpersonal relationships between this agency’s employees, officials or employees and officials, unless a formal grievance under a labor contract, a tort claim notice or a lawsuit has been filed; or

(b) Mediation in which the person acting as the mediator will also act as the hearings officer in a contested case involving some or all of the same matters;

(c) Mediation in which the only parties are public bodies;

(d) Mediation involving two or more public bodies and a private party if the laws, rule or policies governing mediation confidentiality for at least one of the public bodies provide that mediation communications in the mediation are not confidential;

(e) Mediation involving 15 or more parties if the agency has designated that another mediation confidentiality rule adopted by the agency may apply to that mediation.

(6) Disclosures by Mediator: A mediator may not disclose or be compelled to disclose mediation communications in a mediation and, if disclosed, such communications may not be introduced into evidence in any subsequent administrative, judicial, or arbitration proceeding unless:

(a) All the parties to the mediation and the mediator agree in writing to the disclosure; or

(b) The mediation communication may be disclosed or introduced into evidence in a subsequent proceeding as provided in subsections (c)-(d), (j)-(l) or (o)-(p) of section (9) of this rule.

(7) Confidentiality and Inadmissibility of Mediation Communications: Except as provided in sections (8)-(9) of this rule, mediation communications are confidential and may not be disclosed to any other person, are not admissible in any subsequent administrative, judicial or arbitration proceeding and may not be disclosed during testimony in, or during any discovery conducted as part of a subsequent proceeding, or introduced as evidence by the parties or the mediator in any subsequent proceeding.

(8) Written Agreement: Section (7) of this rule does not apply to a mediation unless the parties to the mediation agree in writing, as provided in this section, that the mediation communications in the mediation will be confidential and/or nondiscoverable and inadmissible. If the mediator is the employee of and acting on behalf of a state agency, the mediator or an authorized agency representative must also sign the agreement. The parties’ agreement to participate in a confidential mediation must be in substantially the following form. This form may be used separately or incorporated into an “Agreement to Mediate.”

(g) An employee of the agency may disclose confidential mediation communications to another agency employee so long as the disclosure is necessary to conduct authorized activities of the agency. An employee receiving a confidential mediation communication under this subsection is bound by the same confidentiality requirements as apply to the parties to the mediation.

Child Support Validation Check

The Lottery will use the following procedures as part of the validation process before paying any portion of a Lottery prize in excess of $600:

(1) Database: Lottery information systems personnel shall work with the Division of Child Support of the Department of Justice (DOJ) to maintain a current database on the Lottery’s central computer system containing the names and social security numbers of obligors who are delinquent in paying child support obligations.

(2) Searching the Database: The Lottery shall enter a prize claimant’s name, address, date-of-birth, and social security number into the Lottery’s central computer system. The computer shall search the database containing the names of the delinquent child support obligors for a possible match.

(3) 30 Day Hold: When a claimant is listed in the database and a possible match is found, the Lottery will confirm the match with DOJ. If DOJ responds with a confirmation that the claimant is delinquent on child support payments, the Lottery will place a 30-day hold on any payment to the claimant pending initiation of garnishment proceedings. The Lottery will inform the claimant of the hold, immediately notify DOJ by telephone that the Lottery has placed the hold on the prize payment, and transmit a facsimile copy of supporting information to DOJ.

(4) Garnishment: If a garnishment proceeding is initiated within the 30-day hold period, the Lottery shall make payment to DOJ when the garnishment is received. If the prize claim exceeds the amount of the garnishment, the Lottery will pay the claimant the balance remaining after deduction of the garnishment and applicable taxes. If the garnishment exceeds the amount of the prize claim, the Lottery will inform the claimant that the entire amount of the prize claim was used to respond to the garnishment.

(5) Payment of Prize: If a garnishment proceeding is not initiated within the 30-day hold period, the Lottery will make payment on the prize to the claimant at the end of the 30 day hold period or when DOJ notifies the Lottery that a garnishment proceeding will not be initiated, whichever is sooner.

(6) Voluntary Release: Nothing in this section is intended to prevent a prize claimant from voluntarily releasing payment of all or any portion of the claimant’s prize towards payment of the claimant’s delinquent child support obligations.

Overpayments Recovery Validation Check

The Lottery will use the following procedures as part of the validation process before paying any portion of a Lottery prize in excess of $600. These procedures are in addition to any other procedures set forth in OAR Chapter 177, including the child support validation check contained in OAR 177-010-0090.

(1) Database: The Lottery shall work with the Department of Human Services and the Oregon Health Authority to establish and operate a data match system using automated data exchanges with the Department of Human Services and the Oregon Health Authority that identifies persons that have received an overpayment of assistance for which a final order for overpayment has been issued by the Department of Human Services or the Oregon Health Authority under ORS Chapter 183. Any information necessary to identify the person and hold a payment on a Lottery prize must be available to the Lottery’s central computer system through the data match system.

(2) Searching the Database: When a Lottery ticket or share is presented at the Lottery for payment for a prize that is in excess of $600, or when a prize winner claims any other prize payment at the Lottery that is in excess of $600, the Lottery shall enter the prize claimant’s name, social security number, and any other available identifying information into the Lottery’s central computer system. The computer shall search the database containing the names of the persons that have received an overpayment of assistance as described in section (1) of this rule for a possible match.

(3) 30 Day Hold: When a claimant is listed in the database, the Lottery will place a 30-day hold on any prize payment to the claimant. The Lottery will inform the claimant of the hold, notify the Department of Human Services or the Oregon Health Authority that a recipient of an overpayment of assistance has won a Lottery prize in excess of $600 or is entitled to payment in excess of $600 on a Lottery prize.

(a) If Lottery has questions concerning a match, Lottery will confirm the match with the Department of Human Services or the Oregon Health Authority before proceeding. If the department or the authority confirms that the claimant is the obligor on an overpayment of assistance, Lottery will proceed as provided herein.

(4) Garnishment: If the Lottery receives a notice or writ of garnishment under ORS 18.600 to 18.857 within the 30-day hold period, the Lottery must continue to hold any payment to the claimant pending disposition of the garnishment. Thereafter, the Lottery shall make payment to the garnishor. If the prize claim exceeds the amount of the garnishment, the Lottery will pay the claimant the balance remaining after deduction of the garnishment and applicable taxes. If the garnishment exceeds the amount of the prize claim, the Lottery will inform the claimant that the entire amount of the prize claim was used to respond to the garnishment.

(5) Payment of Prize: If a garnishment is not received within the 30-day hold period, the Lottery shall pay the prize to the claimant at the end of the 30-day hold period or when the Department of Human Services or the Oregon Health Authority notifies the Lottery that a garnishment will not be issued, whichever is sooner.

(6) Voluntary Release: Nothing in this section is intended to prevent a prize claimant from voluntarily releasing payment of all or any portion of the claimant’s prize towards payment of the claimant’s overpayment of assistance.

(7) Priorities: If the Lottery receives multiple garnishments against the same claimant while it is holding the prize claim, it will honor the garnishments in the order that they were received pursuant to ORS 18.627(1), provided however that payment of any past-due child support under OAR 177-010-0090 has priority over the recovery of any overpayment of assistance from a Lottery prize under this rule.

(8) Definitions: As used herein,

(a) “Assistance” includes:

(A) Medical assistance as defined in ORS 414.025.

(B) Public assistance as defined in ORS 411.010.

(C) Supplemental nutrition assistance provided under ORS 411.806 to 411.845.

(D) Any other benefit, aid, or assistance for which the Department of Human Services or the Oregon Health Authority is authorized to issue a final order for an overpayment under ORS Chapter 183.

(b) “Garnishor” means:

(A) The creditor, if the writ of garnishment is issued by a court administrator.

(B) The person or entity that issued the notice or writ of garnishment, if the garnishment was issued by any person other than a court administrator.

Requests and Fees for Copies of Public Records

(1) Procedure: Any person may request to inspect or obtain a copy of a “public record” (as defined in ORS 192.410(4)) which is in the custody of the Lottery.

(2) Reasonable Access: The Lottery will allow reasonable access to any public record in its custody during the Lottery’s regular business hours, unless the record is exempt from disclosure. The Lottery may determine the time and manner of inspection or copying to protect the public record and to prevent interference with the regular activities of the Lottery and its employees. The Lottery will determine reasonable access by taking into account the necessity to maintain the fairness, integrity, security, and honesty of the Lottery.

(3) Requests: Any member of the public may request a public record verbally, in writing, or by submitting the request on a Lottery-provided form. Each request must include:

(a) The requestor’s contact information;

(b) The identification, description, or type of public record requested; and

(c) The format requested (but the Lottery is not obligated to produce a record in a format other than as it is maintained by the Lottery).

(4) Processing Requests: The Lottery will generally acknowledge receipt of a public records request within two business days. The Lottery may contact the requestor to discuss the parameters of the request and may provide an expected timeframe for completion of the request. Involved or complicated public records requests involving electronic records searches will require more response time than routine requests. The Lottery will normally process requests in the order received. The Lottery may advise the requestor whether a record may be disclosed, the date, time, and place the requestor may inspect the record or obtain a copy, and the estimated cost of inspection, copying, and other fees described in this rule. If the requested record contains information exempt from disclosure, the Lottery will provide the requestor with a copy of the record with the exempt information redacted, if it is reasonably possible to do so. If it is not reasonably possible to redact the exempt information, the Lottery will not make the record available.

(5) Fees — General: Unless otherwise provided herein or by law, the Lottery shall charge a fee, in accordance with ORS 192.440, reasonably calculated to reimburse the Lottery for its actual costs of providing a copy of a public record or furnishing a reasonable opportunity to inspect the record.

(a) Fees — Paper Records: The Lottery will charge $.05 a page for photocopies.

(b) Staff Time Charges: The Lottery will charge a fee for the staff time used to respond to public records requests.

(A) Lottery Staff: The Lottery will charge the hourly rate of the staff member or members who respond to the request.

(B) Oregon Attorney General Staff: If the Lottery uses the services of the Oregon Attorney General’s Office to review the public records, redact material, or segregate the public records into exempt and non-exempt records, the Lottery may bill the actual costs to the requestor. The Lottery will not include the costs for time spent by the Attorney General’s staff in determining the application of the provisions of ORS 192.410 to 192.505 to a request for public records.

(C) Outside Contractors: If the Lottery uses the services of an outside facility or contractor to respond to a public records request, the actual costs incurred by the Lottery will be included in the Lottery’s estimate.

(c) Mailing or Shipping Costs: The Lottery may charge a requestor the actual postage or freight costs for mailing or shipping a copy of a record to the requestor, including, but not limited to, any special charges such as certified mail, express mail, or restricted delivery. The Lottery shall determine the manner of shipment.

(d) Certification Costs: Upon request, the Lottery shall provide a certified copy of a public record at an additional cost of $5.00 for each certification. Certified copy means a copy that is certified by the Lottery to be a true and accurate copy of the public record requested.

(e) ADA Format: The Lottery will not charge any extra fee for providing records in an alternative format when required under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

(6) Costs and Estimates:

(a) Notification of Costs: If the actual or estimated costs to make the requested records available exceeds $500, the Lottery will provide the requestor with a written notification of the actual or estimated costs.

(b) Estimates: If the request requires researching archived records and reviewing or redacting information, the Lottery will estimate the costs and will provide a written notification of that information to the requestor.

(c) Payment: The Lottery requires that all fees and charges, whether actual or estimated be paid before it will search its records, prepare copies, and make the requested records available. The requestor must pay the amount in advance to the Oregon State Lottery. If the total actual costs exceed the estimate, the requestor must pay the total actual costs before the Lottery will release the records. If the total actual cost is less than the estimate, the Lottery will refund the overcharge to the requestor. The Lottery will not refund amounts less than $1.

(d) Requests by Current Lottery Retailers: With the written or electronic authorization of a Lottery retailer, the Lottery may bill the retailer the cost of fulfilling a public records request made by the retailer through the retailer’s electronic funds transfer bank account established for Lottery funds. Such amounts will be deducted from the account during the next regularly scheduled electronic debit of the retailer’s account or anytime thereafter.

(7) Waiver of Fees: The Lottery may waive fees for a public records request under the following circumstances:

(a) Amounts under $500: The Lottery will not charge a fee if the actual cost of providing the records is $500 or less. The Lottery will charge a fee equal to the total actual cost of providing the records when the actual cost of providing the records is more than $500. If the estimated cost provided to a requestor was less than $500, but the actual cost exceeds $500, Lottery will notify the requestor when the actual cost reaches $500, provide a new estimate of the cost to fulfill the request, and offer the requestor the option of providing only the records that actually cost less than $500 to produce, or the option of continuing to fulfill the request after payment from the requestor of the actual cost to fulfill the request.

(b) News Media and Non-Profit Organizations: The Lottery will not charge a fee to members of the news media or non-profit organizations when the request is made in the public’s interest.
