Guidelines for Submitting a Public Records Request

  • Written requests are necessary as we must track a high volume of active requests, and we want to ensure everyone gets a quick, accurate and thorough response.
  • Concise, typewritten requests are preferred. Handwritten requests must be legible.
  • Fill in the online Request From above, or  complete the PDF form and submit via email or mail to to the NDOT Records Management.  We will coordinate the records search and NDOT's response with appropriate staff.
  • Be specific and reduce the scope of your request as much as possible. Details regarding locations, dates, project or contract numbers are helpful. This will focus and expedite our records search.
  • Include the requestor's contact information, including email, mailing address and phone number.
  • Pursuant to NRS Chapter 239.0107, we will acknowledge receipt of your request and provide you a status report withing five business days.  If necessary, we will ask for clarification in order to expedite the search for relevant records.
  • Due to the volume of requests, records accessibility, staff availability and legal constraints, we may need a few days or weeks to locate and produce requested records.
  • Records are not always readily accessible.  Both electronic and hard copy records are maintained statewide in dozens of NDOT offices and on multiple servers.  Most permanent and long term records are stored in our Central Records Office.
  • To save yourself and our staff time, prior to dropping by an NDOT office to see documents or files that may or may not be on-hand, we ask that you submit a written appointment request. Include the records you wish to view and your preferred times and location.  We will coordinate a meeting with you as soon as practical.
  • Please keep in mind that NDOT may charge for copies or extraordinary use of staff time, in accordance with NRS 239.055.
  • We appreciate your patience.  Your request is a priority to our staff and we will respond as quickly, accurately and thoroughly as possible.
