Routine requests can be handled directly by contacting the originating department.

Formal Request
A formal request pertains to:

  • Non-public information
  • Personal Information about the requestor (from multiple Departments)
  • Information about third parties

The following outlines the formal request process:

1. All formal requests must be submitted in writing to:

2. Describe the records you want in as much detail as possible and limit your request to only the records you need. The more general or complex your request is the longer it will take to process and the greater the fees that may apply.
