Public Records Requests

California Public Records Act Requests

The California Public Records Act (Gov. Code section 6250, et seq.) and the CSU Auxiliary Organizations Transparency and Accountability Act (SB 8) allows members of the public to inspect and receive copies of public documents maintained by CSUN and its auxiliary organizations.

Requests for inspection or copying of public records:

  • Requests for inspection or copying of CSUN or auxiliary organization public records may be submitted in writing by mail, email or facsimile, and must describe the requested public records with sufficient specificity to enable CSUN or its auxiliary organizations to conduct a reasonable search for the records sought. Certain records may be exempt from public disclosure, and personal and private information may be redacted. CSUN and its auxiliary organizations are not required to create documents that do not already exist.
  • Inspections of public records may not interfere with the business operations of the university or its auxiliary organizations. Records that are reasonably required by CSUN or auxiliary organization personnel in the performance of their duties may not be available for inspection at certain times.
  • Records will be made available for inspection during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Records may not be destroyed, altered or removed from the premises during the inspection. Copies of identified documents will be provided upon request, and hard copies will be provided upon payment of $0.20 per page.

Request Submissions

Public Records Act requests must be submitted in writing to the Public Records Act Coordinator.
