Public Records Requests

Online requests:
By Phone: (628) 246-1372

Note to Requestors: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Mayor has issued supplementary orders suspending select provisions of the Sunshine Ordinance which will affect how soon you may receive responsive documents. This memo provides details.

We have structured our process for responding to public records requests in accordance with the California Public Records Act (California Govt. Code § 6250 et seq) and the San Francisco Sunshine Ordinance (Chapter 67 of the San Francisco Administrative Code) which requires all agencies and boards and commissions created by the City Charter or by Ordinance or Resolution passed by the Board of Supervisors to make City agency records available to the public.

More information about the Sunshine Ordinance public records request process is available through the San Francisco Sunshine Ordinance Task Force and the City Attorney’s Office.
