Public Records

Public records need to be systematically managed to preserve their legal, historic, and informational value and to help promote the efficient and economical operation of government. The head of each Vermont state agency must establish and implement an active and continuing records management program. To help meet these responsibilities, every agency head is required to designate a Records Officer. The Agency's Records Officer serves as the initial point of contact for members of the public making public records, data and general information requests.
