Are Nevada Records Public?

The Nevada Public Records Act (NPRA) describes all records owned, maintained, and stored by state agencies as public records, except where exempted by law. Examples of such records include meeting minutes, memos, reports, surveys, or any other record created by any party for a government agency or paid for with government funds. Other examples of public records may include:

  • Maps
  • Photographs
  • Surveys and Plans
  • Financial documents
  • Written or printed records
  • Electronic records

The Nevada Public Records Act (NPRA) allows individuals, partnerships, corporations, or entities licensed by a contract or agreement with the government or a quasi-public government agency to keep and administer public records. Private bodies can also maintain public records for a government agency. Such records are also public records and are accessible to all requesters without prejudice.

Under the NPRA, interested parties can make requests for public records verbally or in writing by contacting record custodians. These are government agency staff who are designated for managing records and processing requesters’ record applications. 

Who Can Access Nevada Public Records?

Under the NPRA, anyone can approach the record custodian of the government agency and request records or inspect books maintained by the agency. Specifically, individuals, LLCs, organizations, and partnerships can make records requests without prejudice. Nevada Public Records Laws require all governmental agencies to ensure all public records and documents in their custody are always open during official hours of the day for inspection by anyone. Furthermore, records requesters do not have to be residents of Nevada to have unrestricted access to inspecting public records.

Making a records request can be done verbally or in writing. However, written records requests are better as they help document extensive requests and can be reexamined when filing an appeal. Such records can also be copied in their entirety or a memo/abstract made from the actual records. 

Note: Ensure that you check the general guidelines provided by the governmental agency for requesting records. Some departments use forms that must be filled out accurately. Nevada records custodians have a period of five business days to settle records requests.

Do I Need to State My Purpose and Use When Requesting Public Records in Nevada?

Public records are open to all for inspection in Nevada, and there is no requirement for a statement of purpose when making a records request. The records custodians also should not ask for identification from requesters as residents and non-residents can apply. The Nevada Public Records Law states that all requesters are equal and must be treated as such. It means that any identification requests made by the records custodian are aimed at verifying the eligibility of the requester and also determining if a fee waiver can apply. Such fee waivers are granted at the custodian’s discretion and when some conditions are met.
