Public Information Requests
The State Office of Administrative Hearings is committed to providing full access to public information. To request records under the Texas Public Information Act:
- Please submit your request in writing by United States Postal Mail, fax, or email.
- Please include your name, address, or other contact information, and a clear description of the records you are requesting.
Mail: Public Information Coordinator State Office of Administrative Hearings P.O. Box 13025 Austin, Texas 78711-3025 Fax: 512.475.4994 Email: SOAH.PI@soah.texas.gov
You will be notified in writing if there are costs associated with your records request. The Office of the Attorney General sets what a state agency may charge for information. For questions about the Public Information Act, please consult the Texas Office of Attorney General, Open Records Division.
Tips to Request Information
Your request must be in writing. Only written requests trigger obligations under the Public Information Act.
Your request should be for documents or other information already in existence. Governmental bodies are not required to answer questions, perform legal research, or comply with a continuing request to supply information on a periodic basis as such information is prepared in the future.
Be as specific as possible in your request and include a timeframe when appropriate.
Requests made by fax or email must be addressed to the Public Information Coordinator to trigger an obligation under the Public Information Act
