Public Records Office
About the Public Records Office
The Public Records Office (PRO) is responsible for coordinating the University's responses to public requests for records made under the California Public Records Act (CPRA) and the Information Practices Act of 1977 (IPA). The PRO is not the official office of record, but an office set up to collect, review, and release documents that are responsive to public records requests.
The responsibilities of the PRO are to receive, log, and process all requests for public records made under the CPRA and the IPA; to route copies of requests for records to appropriate (campus or medical center) organizational units, and to obtain from them copies of public records that are potentially responsive to requests (or to determine that no public records exist); to coordinate a review of potentially responsive documents to determine possible exemptions from disclosure or to make necessary redactions prior to release; and to make public documents available to requesters (or to notify requesters when there are no documents to provide or when documents are exempt from disclosure).
