GRAMA Requests

The Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA) is a Utah law that deals with the management of government records. GRAMA specifies who has access to various state records and how the law is to be administered. It is intended to balance the public’s constitutional right of access to public information, an individual’s constitutional right of privacy when the personal information is collected by government entities, and the public policy interest in restricting access to certain records for the public good.

This page includes links to GRAMA requests submitted to the Office of the Utah State Auditor as well as the Office’s response to those requests, including links to all records made available under the GRAMA request.

To file a GRAMA request with the Office, please use the GRAMA request form.  Please email your request to Mandy Teerlink, GRAMA Officer, at

The Office charges fees for the production of GRAMA requests consistent with GRAMA regulations.  Click to see the Office’s fee schedule.
