The department of records and information services, or its successor agency, shall maintain a list on its website of all reports, documents, studies and publications required by local law, executive order, or mayoral directive to be published, issued, or transmitted to the council or mayor. Such list shall provide, for each such report, document, study and publication:

1. a copy of such report, document, study or publication;

2. the frequency of required publishing, issuance, or transmittal for such report, document, study or publication;

The department, or its successor agency, shall make such request available on or through its website in place of the report, document, study or publication that has not been received until such time as such report, document, study or publication is received and made available on or through such website.
