State Records Officers


Pursuant to 3 V.S.A. § 218(d) (Agency/Department Records Management Program), the head of each State agency or department "shall designate a member of his or her staff as the records officer for his or her agency or department, and shall notify the Vermont State Archives and Records Administration in writing of the name and title of the person designated, and shall post the name and contact information of the person on the agency or department website, if one exists."

Although 3 V.S.A. § 218 applies specifically to executive agencies and departments in state government, constitutional officers and legislative and judicial bodies also designate records officers as a best practice for their records management programs. 

A records officer designated under 3 V.S.A. 218 may also be designated under 1 V.S.A. § 318 (Access To Public Records) to be accountable for overseeing the processing of requests for public records received by the Agency or the Department.
