To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the state open records law, Ariz. Rev. Stat. Ann. Secs. 39-121 to 39-122 and 39-128, I hereby request the following records:

The most recently submitted versions of the following materials required to be prepared by each agency of the State of Arizona as outlined in Arizona Revised Statutes §41-151.14:

• All schedules proposing the length of time each records series warrants retention for administrative, legal or fiscal purposes
• The list of public records in the agency’s custody that are not needed in the transaction of current business and that are not considered to have sufficient administrative, legal or fiscal value to warrant their inclusion in established disposal schedules.

• The designated individual within this agency tasked with the records management program and applicable contact information.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
