Good morning - -

In my opinion, first, names and addresses of hotels and restaurants that appear on travel vouchers are clearly public. It must be assumed that an employee has expended or seeks to reimbursed for expenses incurred in the performance of his or her duties. That being so, disclosure would result in a permissible, not an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. Further, there would be no privacy implications relating to business entities, such as hotels or restaurants.

Second, it has been advised that agency credit card numbers and similar materials may be withheld, for they could be used by others to make improper purchases or interfere with an agency's functions.

I hope that I have been of assistance.
