Good communication is vital in the RTKL process. Complete this form thoroughly and retain a copy; it may be
required if an appeal is filed. You have 15 business days to appeal after a request is denied or deemed denied.
Be clear and concise. Provide as much specific detail as possible, ideally including subject
matter, time frame, and type of record or party names. RTKL requests should seek records, not ask questions. Requesters
are not required to explain why the records are sought or the intended use of the records unless otherwise required by law.
Use additional pages if necessary.
NOTE: In most cases, a completed RTKL request form is a public record.
