    Government Records Access Management Act

    The Government Records Access Management Act (GRAMA) went into effect in 1992. GRAMA sets guidelines for classifying all types of data and information in Utah government records based upon who has rights to access that information. Government works under the double requirement of public transparency and protecting private information.

    To access information from the Public Lands Policy Coordinating Office, please fill out and submit a GRAMA request form by filling out the online GRAMA request form or returning a printed form with signature by mail, fax or email to our agency.

    Once a form is received by the GRAMA coordinator, PLPCO has 10 business days in which to respond. Under the Utah GRAMA rule (Utah Code 63G-2), a reasonable administrative service fee can be (and normally is) assessed for both hard copies and staff time to search, retrieve, summarize, compile and/or tailor requested records.
