(a) A contractor must not disclose information from
the case record on a ward served under the contract with the DADS
Guardianship Services Program in a manner that identifies the ward
unless the disclosure is necessary to carry out the duties of the
contractor, as described in subsection (b) of this section. Texas
Human Resources Code, §161.111 makes information about a DADS
guardianship case confidential, and this extends to the case record
of DADS wards served through contracts with DADS. All records, reports,
or working papers related to the case are confidential and are exempt
from public disclosure under the Texas Open Records Act (Chapter 552,
Government Code). DFPS Adult Protective Services Division records
are also confidential under Texas Human Resources Code, §48.101.
