Updating the Standard RTK Request Form

Open records_logo stackedPennsylvania’s Right-to-Know Law gives the Office of Open Records the duty to “develop a uniform [request] form which shall be accepted by all Commonwealth and local agencies” (Section 505(a)).

The OOR’s standard Right-to-Know request form hasn’t been updated since 2013. We’re now in the process of reviewing and updating the form — with the goal of improving it by making it better for both requesters and agencies.

Previous version of the form can be found here:

If you have any thoughts or suggestions on how to improve the standard RTK request form, please share them with us. We’d love to hear from you.
