ABOUT PUBLIC RECORDS REPORTING
Do I have to report?RCW 40.14.026 requires agencies with public records costs that exceed $100,000 to report to the Joint Legislative Audit and Review Committee (JLARC) on a variety of performance metrics including information on cost, staff time, and response time. JLARC has developed an online reporting tool to collect the performance metrics data.
You can still report if your agency does not spend over $100,000 on public records costs.
If your agency does not wish to report, JLARC encourages every agency to log into the reporting system and tell us that your agency did not meet the $100,000 reporting threshold.
Further guidance on the performance metrics can be found in the agency guidance document.
