Requesting a Report

Following are the classifications of records and strictly followed procedures:

Each government agency is required by UCA 63G-2-202 of GRAMA to evaluate all record series that it uses or creates and designate or classify those record series. After classifying its series, each agency must report those classifications to the State Archives. A government agency may classify a record, record series, or information within a record at any time, but is not required to do so until access to the record is requested. An agency may reclassify a record, record series, or information within a record at any time.

Classifying records under GRAMA is the procedure of determining who may have legal access to the information in a record series. This procedure is the responsibility of the agency who creates or collects the information in a record series. Agency personnel responsible for classifying records should refer to GRAMA and any other applicable laws and rules when determining their records? classifications. The State Archives Records Analyst is also available to give assistance in classifying records.
