Portland Fire & Rescue | REQUESTING INFORMATION
The City of Portland has launched a new web tool: the Portland Public Record Request Center (GovQA). Championed by Mayor Charlie Hales, the GovQA software allows you to make public records requests through an online portal. Benefits include:
- All requests can be made at one website.
- Requests are routed directly to the bureau holding the records.
- Payment can be made online with a credit card or electronic check.
- All requests, all communications about the requests, and the statuses of all requests are available in one place.
- Responsive documents will be accessible on line to the requester.
This tool will streamline the response process and will ensure that the City stays current with the evolving methods of record creation, retention, and retrieval.
