Search Existing Requests

Create a New Request.

If you can't find an existing request that has what you're looking for, you can create a new request. When making a request, it helps to be as specific as possible. 

We strongly recommend including all the following specifics:

  • Contact information – i.e.: name, phone number, email address, etc.
  • Date range for request - date ranges help with results that may be overly broad and that could result in responses that may contain thousands of documents.
  • Key words or key terms - for electronic records, key words and search terms that are overly broad may result in responses that contain thousands of documents.
  • The name of the department(s) from which you are requesting documents.
