Department of Administration Public Records Request Overview

A public records request includes, but is not limited to, written documents and electronic files containing information relating to the conduct or administration of the public’s business prepared, owned, used or retained by the Department of Administration. Under the Idaho Public Records Law Manual, the public can request in writing to examine or copy these types of public records.

While most agency records are available to the public, certain records may be withheld from disclosure due to their confidential nature; the exceptions to public record disclosure are described in the Idaho Public Records Law Manual

Public Records Request Fees

Idaho Code authorizes the Department of Administration to establish a copying fee schedule reflecting the actual copying costs. No administrative or labor costs resulting from locating and providing a copy of the public record may be charged unless the request is for more than one hundred (100) pages, includes records from which nonpublic information must be deleted, or the actual labor associated with locating and copying documents for a request exceeds two person hours.
