Input needed for study on trends in public records

Due to changes in the nature and volume of public records requests, the 2015 Legislature asked the State Auditor's Office (SAO) to study public records and estimate the cost of providing paper and electronic records. The study will be conducted at no cost to local governments and state agencies.

In order to collect information about the nature, volume, and the associated costs of public records requests, SAO is preparing a survey of every state agency and local government organization in Washington. By responding to the survey, governments will help SAO provide relevant information to the Legislature about the impact of public records requests on public agencies. SAO will be providing more information about the study and survey this fall, and will publish their full report in 2016.

Learn more about how you can help SAO provide relevant information to the Legislature about the impact of public records requests on public agencies. More
