About the Open Records Website
The Open Records Website was developed by the Utah State Archives, in conjunction with the Utah Transparency Board, as outlined in Utah Code 63A-3-403(10)(11). This law requires the Transparency Board and the Department of Administrative Services to establish and maintain a website for the purpose of providing a central access point to request governmental records from within the state of Utah.
Our mission is to provide easier access to governmental records, and to serve as a resource for citizens, public officials, and members of the media in obtaining records.
Authority and Milestones
The S.B. 70 State Data Portal Amendments, 2014 General Session, is a directive for the Department of Administrative Services, in partnership with the Utah Transparency Advisory Board, to create a single point of access for all Government Records Access and Management (GRAMA) requests for executive agencies, school districts, charter schools, public transit districts, counties, municipalities, local districts and special service districts. The milestones for all governmental agencies are identified below as targeted in S.B. 70.
