MPIA and FOIA Requests

Maryland Public Information Act related requests may be submitted to the Records Management Division. The MPIA allows an agency to charge a “reasonable fee” for copies of records with the first two (2) hours of request preparation, research, and review performed free of charge.

Effective July 1, 2022, any additional time, beyond the first two (2) hours, required to satisfy the request will be billed at a rate of $50 an hour.
