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.”
The FY 2014 DAS Annual Report is now available online at the following page: DAS Annual Reports
SALT LAKE CITY – The Department of Administrative Services (DAS) has named Bruce Whittington as the interim director of the Division of Facilities Construction and Management (DFCM). Whittington will step into the position November 1, 2014. A nationwide search will be conducted to find a replacement for Joshua Haines who recently accepted a position in the private sector.
“It is with bittersweet feelings that I have accepted Josh’s resignation,” said DAS Executive Director Kimberly Hood. He has been such a tremendous asset to the DFCM. His ability to forge relationships among stakeholders and to develop and mature internal teams has led the division to dramatic improvements in project management processes. We appreciate his great work and wish him the very best in his future endeavors.”
