The Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA) provides every person the right to request records from any governmental entity in Utah (Utah Code Section 63G-2-201(1)).

Almost all government records are subject to request, however, access to some records is restricted. Upon receipt of a request, the governmental entity will determine the classification and provide the records and/or a response, which may be a notice of denial. Definitions of record and governmental entities are found in GRAMA (Utah Code Section 63G-2-103(11),(22)).
