Utah has opened a central online location for people to submit open-records requests to state agencies.

The open-records portal at http://openrecords.utah.gov is an attempt to cut through some of the bureaucratic difficulties in locating who at a particular state agency would field the request and how to contact them.

“The portal is a central point for requesting access to records from state executive agencies,” according to a Department of Administrative Services news release. “The portal will be expanded over the next two years to include local governments as well.”
