OPEN RECORDS REQUEST
Submit a Colorado Open Records Act request
The Colorado Open Records Act (CORA) is a series of laws designed to guarantee that the public has access to public records of government bodies at all levels in Colorado.
It is important to note that CORA only makes public written information that already exists within the government available to the public through a records request. It does not require an agency or other government organization involved to create new records to respond to a request. It also does not require the government to manipulate or analyze information it might have in a new way to respond to a request.
Additionally, there may be a fee associated with fulfilling requests for a large number of records to cover the costs of redaction of confidential information, or research and retrieval fees for requests involving extensive digital or electronic data or large volumes of documents, of up to $33.50 per hour of staff time, 25 cents per paper copy and 50 cents per CD. You will be notified in advance of any fees. Payment must be received in advance.
