Requesting Public Records
Request Form is available at the BIIA Olympia Office or on-line here
Public Records requests must include:
- Name and address and contact information for requestor.
- Description of public records adequate to locate the records.
- Date of request.
You will receive a response within five business days.
State Agencies are not required to create documents to comply with a request for specific information. Rather, they must produce existing records for review and copying. Also, state agencies are not obligated to compile information from various records so that information is in a form that is more useful to the requestor.
The Public Records Officer will make records available for inspection and copying by appointment during normal business hours, excluding legal holidays. Requestors will not remove documents from the viewing area or disassemble or alter any document.
The requestor will indicate which documents he or she wishes the BIIA to copy.
