Request Public Records at DGS
Any person can make a public records request from the Department of General Services (DGS) that are not exempt from disclosure by statute or other authority. Requests for the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH) should be sent to the public records review officer at OAH. Requests for all other offices within DGS should be sent to the Office of Public Affairs.
Requests for records may be oral or in writing; however, DGS encourages written requests to assist the department in providing accurate, complete and timely responses. Inquiries for DGS should be emailed to the Office of Public Affairs at DGSPublicAffairs@dgs.ca.gov. Inquiries for OAH should be emailed to OAHPRA@dgs.ca.gov.
Each division within DGS has a designated public records officer. Requests for public records can also be directed to the designated public records officer for the division holding the records. See the list of public records officers below.
Records are open to public inspection at all times during normal working hours. Every person has the right to inspect any record except those exempt from disclosure by statute or other authority. (See, e.g., Gov. Code § 6254 et seq.) Where portions of a record are exempt, DGS will produce the non-exempt portions.
Copies of records not exempt from disclosure will be provided upon pre-payment of copying costs. The fee for copies is 10 cents per page.
