The Department of Administration strives to provide public access to information regarding the conduct of agency business and the official acts and decisions of agency officers and employees, while preserving confidential information. Information regarding how to request Department of Administration records can be found in the DOA Public Records Notice.
The State Records Center, within DOA's Division of Enterprise Operations, Bureau of Enterprise Fleet, stores records for many state agencies and some municipalities. Because DOA is the legal custodian for only its own records, requests for other agencies' records must be directed to those agencies.
Policies regarding retention of state records are established by the Public Records Board. Guidance regarding access to state records under the public records law, as well as information regarding the state's open meetings law, may be found online with the Wisconsin Department of Justice.
