The Department of Agricultural Resources encourages you to use the form below to make a public records request (PRR) of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs. This 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 an RAO, such requests may not be the subject of an appeal. Telephone requests may be accepted at the discretion of the RAO.
The Department of Agricultural Resources has designated the following employee as the Primary Records Access Officer (RAO) who will assist requesters in fulfilling their requests.

Title: Legal Counsel
Business address: 30 Riverside Drive, Suite 202, Lakeville, MA 02347
Business telephone number: 617-874-6741
Business email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Only questions pertaining to the PRR process or a PRR status should be sent to the email account of the Primary RAO.
Public Records Requests Tips
Consider how you can narrow the scope of your request to expedite the production process. The first four hours of work performed to respond to a PRR will be performed at no cost. After that, the agency may charge up to $25 per hour.
Public agencies must adhere to the law requiring them to secure personally identifiable information and prevent unwarranted invasions of privacy. Documents containing such information must be redacted carefully before releasing, expanding time needed for production. Consider how you might revise your PRR to exclude records containing such information.
Contacting a Secretariat or Agency
To help avoid delay in responses, please consider whether your public record request would more appropriately be directed to a different agency.
Each secretariat and agency has a designated RAO who will receive and respond to public records requests.
