When requesting public records, please provide a reasonable description of the records sought and a preferred format, if any, for receiving public records that are available in electronic form. Please understand that a request to search employee emails will generally require more time to complete and may require us to charge fees. It is often helpful to specify a time period and particular search terms, so that the search does not yield unmanageable results.
All requests will be processed in accordance with the public records law and regulations at M.G.L. c. 66, § 1 et seq. (as most recently amended by An Act to Improve Public Records, St. 2016, c. 121) and 950 C.M.R. 32.00. The procedure for appealing a public records response to the Supervisor of Public Records is set forth at 950 C.M.R. 32.08, available at http://www.mass.gov/courts/case-legal-res/law-lib/laws-by-source/cmr/.
Contacting an Agency
To help avoid delay in responses, please consider whether your public record request would more appropriately be directed to a secretariat or agency.
Each secretariat and agency has a designated RAO who will receive and respond to public records requests. The following are links to A&F agency PRR pages and RAO emails for your review.
