The volume of public records requests rose an average of 35 percent since March of 2020, while the complexity of those requests grew by 18 percent. Clearly, the COVID-19 pandemic, national protests and economic disruption made the work of fulfilling public records requests even more challenging. To keep pace with this growing demand and reduce the risk of violating public records laws, government organizations must embrace new ways of handling these requests.
Join experts from Government Technology and GovQA on June 9 at 10:00am PT/1:00pm ET for a special 30-minute Lunch and Learn webinar that will delve into the results of a first-of-its-kind benchmark study on the growth of public records requests and discuss strategies government organizations can use to manage this growing challenge.
