Open Records Policy and Request Form

The Tennessee Public Records Act (the "Act") grants Tennessee citizens an enforceable right to access open public records that exist at the time of the request. The Act does not require Records Custodians or the Public Records Request Coordinator to compile information or create (or recreate) records that do not exist, nor does the public have access to documents and information deemed exempt by state or federal law. Certain information is not public, which may require that the requested records to be redacted prior to being provided or to be withheld altogether.
