GRAMA

Government Records Access Management Act (GRAMA)

Government Records Access and Management Act is designed to allow you to inspect or receive copies of public records and is governed by the State of Utah.

Each county agency stores its own records, and you will need to contact that agency directly with any records request. For your convenience, Salt Lake County uses an online GRAMA Request Portal that enables a requestor to submit a request online.  Your request will be submitted directly to the agency that is chosen, and the requestor will be notified of the progress if an email address is provided. 

Prior To Submitting Your Request

The information you are seeking may not require a GRAMA request as it may already be accessible on the Salt Lake County's website, or by contacting the agency directly.

Response Time

All written requests shall be responded to within ten (10) business days following the date the request is received, except in the instance when the request is for media purposes (within five (5) business days). The ten (10) business day begins the day of receipt of the request. The requestor will be notified of an extension (business days) if the files are voluminous or if other reasons make it impossible to assemble the request out within the normal ten (10) business day period.

Fee Waiver

You are permitted to request a waiver of copying fees associated with this request. Please include a specific explanation as to why your request for information is in the public interest merits a fee waiver.
