The Office of Public Affairs manages all requests for public records submitted to the university.
UNLV is committed to providing public records in compliance with the Nevada Open Records Act, Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) Chapter 239. The Office of Public Affairs is the designated administrative unit at UNLV responsible for accepting, reviewing, and responding to public records requests.
Your request will be processed in accordance with the Nevada Public Records Act (NRS 239) and the NSHE Board of Regents Handbook and Policies. Pursuant to NRS 239.0107(1)(c) within 5 business days of receiving your request for public records the UNLV Office of Public Affairs will provide records for inspection or copying or notify the requester one of the following:
The University office does not possess the information and provide the name and address of the entity that does if known, or
The information cannot be available within five (5) business days and provide a date and time after which the record will be available to inspect or to obtain a copy, or
The request is denied.
In accordance with the NSHE Procedures and Guidelines Manual, Chapter 4, Section 18, UNLV may charge for copies of public records as well as the extraordinary use of personnel and/or technology needed to respond to a request. The requesting party will be provided with an estimate of charges in advance. While NSHE Procedures and Guidelines require a full payment in advance, UNLV only requires a 50 percent advance deposit to begin work on the request, with the remainder due upon completion.
Ten cents ($.10) per page will be charged for more than 20 pages of copied records
Fifty cents ($.50) per page will be charged for requests requiring extraordinary use of personnel time (2+ hours) or technological resources
