The Department of Energy 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 Energy Resources has designated the following employee as the Primary Records Access Officer (RAO) who will assist requesters in fulfilling their requests.
Rachel Graham Evans, Primary RAO
Title: Deputy General Counsel
Business address: 100 Cambridge St. Suite 1020, Boston, MA 02114
Business telephone number: 617-626-7326
Business email: DOER.RAO@mass.gov
Only questions pertaining to the PRR process or a PRR status should be sent to the email account of the Primary RAO.
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.
