(1) The OIC's central office is located at Tumwater, Washington. The OIC has field offices in Seattle and Spokane.
(2) Any person wishing to request access to public records of the OIC, or seeking assistance in making such a request should contact the OIC public records manager at:
Public Records Manager
Office of the Insurance Commissioner
5000 Capitol Boulevard S.E.
Tumwater, WA 98501
Information is also available at the insurance commissioner's web site at www.insurance.wa.gov.
(3) The public records manager will oversee compliance with the act but other OIC staff members may process the request. Therefore, these rules will refer to the public records manager "or designee." The public records manager or designee and agency staff will provide the "fullest assistance" to requestors, create and maintain for use by the public an index to public records of the OIC, ensure that public records are protected from damage or disorganization, and prevent fulfilling public records requests from causing excessive interference with essential functions of the agency.
