Take the Survey

In Fall 2019, GovQA conducted a survey to gather the opinions of state and local agencies on their public records priorities for the upcoming year — 2020. At that time, no one could have anticipated all the new challenges that 2020 thrust upon us: global pandemic, civil unrest, election uncertainties, extreme weather events —  and how these extraordinary struggles might completely change the landscape of public records request processing for years to come. But here we are, nearing the end of this unprecedented year. 

We can look back and see that nearly all of the priorities we asked about last year are still relevant – some much more so today than anyone could have guessed. But using 2020 Hindsight, we have added a few new topics to the mix for the 2021 survey. 

If you participated in the survey last year, thank you! 320 of your peers in public records participated with you! In the interest of gathering comparative data from year to year, we ask you to participate again

If this is your first year participating in the survey, thank you!  We hope to grow our respondents count to 1000 this year.  Please share this survey with your colleagues!
