  • What are Public Records?

    Section 119.011(12) Florida Statutes, defines "public records" to include:

    • All documents, papers, letters, maps, books, tapes, photographs, films, sound recordings, data processing software, or other material, regardless of the physical form, characteristics, or means of transmission, made or received in connection with the transaction of official business.
    • The Florida Supreme Court has interpreted this definition to encompass all materials made or received in connection with official business that are used to perpetuate, communicate, or formalize knowledge.
  • Who can make a public records request?
    Anyone, even a non-Florida resident.
  • Is there a fee when requesting public records?

    Yes. The records custodian can charge the requestor for:

    • The cost of labor for retrieving and redacting records if the records requested involve an extensive amount of work or an extensive use of technical resources to retrieve.
    • UNF can also charge for the actual cost of duplication ($.15 per copy, $.20 for double-sided copies and $1.00 per certified copy).
