Public records survey sent by Auditor’s Office – please respond

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. 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.

The survey went out in early November and will be open until early December. 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. AWC is asking all cities to take part in this important study. Learn more about the survey here.
