Guidelines for Making a Public Record Request
The Department of Unemployment Assistance (DUA) encourages you to use the form below to make a public records request (PRR) of DUA. This form helps to ensure the most expeditious and accurate response to your request. Otherwise, written requests may be delivered by hand, mail, email or fax (if available). While requests for public records may be made orally in person to a Records Access Officer (RAO), such requests may not be the subject of an appeal. Telephone requests may be accepted at the discretion of the RAO.
EOLWD has designated the following employee as the Primary Records Access Officer (RAO) who will assist requesters in fulfilling their requests. Only questions pertaining to the PRR process or a PRR status should be sent to the email account of the Primary RAO.

Contacting an Agency
To help avoid delay in responses, please consider whether your public record request would more appropriately be directed to a different secretariat or a more specific agency within EOLWD.
Each secretariat and agency has a designated RAO who will receive and respond to public records requests.
