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. 

Consider how you can narrow the scope of your request to expedite the production process.  

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.

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.
