Public Records Request Policy

Public Records Request Form

Step 1: COMPLETE all fields on this form. This form is to facilitate and expedite the processing of your public records request. Describe identifiable records in the possession of the Purchasing Department; your request must be sufficiently focused and specific to allow Purchasing to locate the requested record(s).

Step 2: SUBMIT completed form electronically online, by mail, fax, email or in person to: County of Riverside Purchasing Department Attn: Lydia Bell, Procurement Services Officer 2980 Washington Street Riverside, CA 92504

Step 3: WAIT to receive an invoice for responsive records. Purchasing shall determine within 10-days from receipt of a public records request, whether the request, in whole or part, seeks copies of disclosable public records in possession of the Purchasing Department [GC-6253(c)]. Please note that if you are requesting the opportunity to inspect records, you will be requested to make an appointment to return at a later date/time to view the documents during business hours.

Charges for direct cost of duplication will apply. Documents will not be copied until payment has been received. If payment is not received within 10 days after invoice is sent, you may be required to submit a new request. Please see Riverside County Purchasing Department Public Records Request Procedures for additional information.

I understand that I will be contacted once documents have been identified. If production of records is requested, an estimated cost will be provided to me and I agree that I will be required to submit payment for duplication costs (and mailing) prior to the production of the requested documents
