Process to Receive or Review Information
The Governor's Office will notify the requester in writing within 5 business days of when the records for inspection or copies will be available. If requests are made which may require an extraordinary amount of staff time to fulfill, the response will indicate when further notification will be made as to the availability of the public record and provide a fee assessment if applicable.
Inspection of such public books or records must take place in the Governor's Office during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, 8:00 to 5:00. Governor's Office staff will observe the inspection of the record to ensure the records are not removed, disassembled or altered. Access to public records may be made in installments if the person who requested to inspect the record agrees and the record is large enough that it would be reasonably practicable to provide access to the record in installments.
If the requester asks for copies of specific documents while on site, copies will be made by Governor's office staff, when staff is available. If records contain confidential information, staff will provide a redacted version of the requested document. Because it will take time for staff to prepare documents that need redacting, it is best to make arrangements ahead of time to give staff ample time to prepare documents.
When requested copies of a public book or record are completed, the Governor's Office will notify the requester that the information may be picked up at the office, or be sent via regular mail. Information will be held for a maximum of 30 days.
To enable the Governor's Office to respond accurately and completely to requests, requests should be made in writing using the request form. Requests for public information documents can be made via regular mail or email. All such requests for Governor's office public record documents may be sent to the designated agency public records officer:
