Records Manager and Freedom of Information Officer
525 N. Main
Wichita, KS 67203
If you have not found what you are looking for
on the other KORA pages, then you may need to
submit a request to the Freedom of
Information Officer (FIO). The FIO will refer your request to the appropriate
Sedgwick County department(s). Or, if you prefer and know the department that
likely has the records you seek, you may check the listing of departmental Open
Records Coordinators, and call the Coordinator directly.
The Kansas Open Records Act (KORA) only requires public agencies to provide
records that already exist. KORA requires departments to respond within three
business days. County departments may require that requests be submitted in
writing and include the requester’s name and physical address. KORA allows
Sedgwick County departments to charge fees for making records available to
requesters or for providing copies.
KORA does not require creating records to meet a requester’s specifications,
compiling research or statistical reports, or interpreting records.
Requests should be specific in terms of dates, times and other information
content, so that departments may understand, search and provide records that are
responsive. KORA does not require public agencies to accept standing requests
for records in advance of their creation.
