Office of Open Records

The Mission of the Office of Open Records is to implement and enforce the state’s Right-to-Know Law (RTKL) and serve as a source for citizens, agencies, public officials and members of the media in obtaining public records of their government.

As part of that mission, the Office of Open Records has developed this Citizen's Guide to the RTKL, providing a basic overview.

Agencies are to ensure that citizens are provided access to records to which they are entitled. Equally important, Requesters are to use good judgment in seeking records from the public body and not use this law to harass or overburden a public body from performing its other functions. The Office of Open Records encourages patience and a spirit of cooperation among all parties.

If you have any questions or need more information please contact the Office of Open Records at (717) 346-9903 or via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
