Public Records

The Bureau of Administration works to coordinate public record requests throughout the executive branch. The following links will help you if you have questions regarding public records.

How does the process for requesting a record work?

Who should I contact?
Each State agency has designated a person to answer questions related to public records kept by their department or bureau.

In the event a State agency refuses a request for a document, a citizen can appeal that decision to the Office of Hearing Examiners.
