Welcome

Welcome to the Office of the Attorney General's Public Information Act Electronic Filing System. The OAG uses this system to accept a governmental body's request for an attorney general open records decision under the Public Information Act, Texas Government Code Chapter 552. Interested parties can also use this system to submit comments or materials for review by the OAG during the open records decision process.

Please Note: This system cannot be used to request public information from the OAG or any other governmental body. Requests for public information must be submitted directly to the governmental body from whom you are seeking information.

You can use this service to:

  • Request an attorney general open records decision and submit new material for review; or
  • Submit supplemental documents or comments related to an existing request for decision.

Information You Need:

  • Name of Governmental Body or Interested Party
  • Governmental Body PIC ID (This is the internal tracking number assigned to a public information request by a governmental body. This is not the ID number assigned by Texas.gov. Third parties should contact the Governmental Body for this number or use the name of the Governmental Body for this data field.)
  • Texas.gov Request ID (if you are submitting additional material to an existing request)
  • Credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express) or Electronic Check information
