Draft or Record?

Rebekkah Shaw GRAMA, Records Management, State Records Committee, Training Leave a Comment

Do you get GRAMA requests for drafts? Do you wonder if your drafts are records or not? What about the classification of drafts? Look no further!

Our wonderful Records Ombudsman, Rosemary Cundiff, has added an article to the Government Records Ombudsman website to help you analyze and classify the drafts created by your office.

This guideline can help you understand when a draft is protected vs. public as well as decisions from the State Records Committee when drafts were the subject of the hearing.

Rosemary is a great resource for government records officers who are responding to records requests. She can be reached at (801) 531-3858 or rcundiff@utah.gov.

  1. Thank you for the information, this is very helpful. I do have a question. If we haven’t already classified our draft city council minutes how do I go about doing that or does the state code take care of that for us?
