The Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA) is a comprehensive state law dealing with management of government records. GRAMA states who has access to records and how the law is enforced. It is an attempt to balance the public’s constitutional right of access to information concerning public business, the individual’s constitutional right of privacy when the government gathers personal data, and the public policy interest in allowing a government to restrict access to certain records for the public good. It serves a similar function to the federal Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
The Utah Insurance Department will respond to GRAMA requests that apply to records that have been created or are maintained by the Department. The more specific and narrow the request, the easier it will be for the Department to respond to the request.
Directions for requesting filed rate, rule, and form information may be found on our Licensee Public Records Request page.
Note: GRAMA allows a reasonable administrative search fee to be assessed for both hard copies and staff time required to search, retrieve, summarize, compile and tailor requested records. Specific fee information will be provided once the completed request is submitted and the records are located.
To file a GRAMA request, please go to openrecords.utah.gov, select State Agencies, and click the Request Records button next to relevant division within the Insurance Department.
