Quarterly Reports for Public Information Requests

Starting November 1, 2023 and moving forward, Public Information Act requests sent to the Baltimore City Office of the Comptroller will be published in a quarterly report and made available on the office’s website. 

The Comptroller’s Office committed to this level of transparency in its January 2021 transition report (pg 26) based on a recommendation from good government advocates.

This policy will include all Public Information requests from the media, public, business and government entities, and cover all available responsive documents from the departments of the Office of the Comptroller and Board of Estimates meetings.

The quarterly report will include the name of the requesting entity, item requested and fulfillment status. Individual requester names will not be listed. Individual residents will be designated 'Member of the Public.'
