Information Regarding Public Record Requests

Requestors only have a right to a record:

  1. That is already maintained, and
  2. In the format in which it is kept.

Arizona’s Public Records Law does not require the State to:

  1. Obtain a new Record, Or
  2. Create new report formats, Or
  3. Convert a record to a different medium or format.

All information is considered public record, with three broad exceptions:

  1. Confidentiality – Disclosure is not required where prohibited by statute, court rule or court order (e.g., social security numbers, court orders, etc.).
  2. Personal privacy – Some records need not be disclosed due to an individual’s privacy rights (e.g., home address, telephone numbers, email addresses, racial background, age).
  3. “Best interest” – Disclosure may not be required if release of the record is not in the best interest of the state (e.g., release would inhibit public safety efforts or place the State at a competitive disadvantage).

The only charge for records is the cost of reproduction.  The State cannot charge for the cost of searching for the record.

Reproduction costs include:

  1. Cost of paper or other media
  2. Cost of the machinery to do the reproduction
  3. Cost to retrieve records from the State Records Center
  4. Cost of employee to do the reproduction

The Standard Document Copying Charge is $.25 per page.
