Open Records Policy

The Texas Bond Review Board intends to expediently provide access to all public records. Currently, all records are housed in the Bond Review Board's offices at 300 West 15th Street, Room 409, Austin, Texas, and access is made available to or copies of public records can be made at these offices.

Staff will provide assistance in the form of file research/retrieval, copying, or computer research, as appropriate.

The charge to any person requesting copies of any public records of the Texas Bond Review Board will be the current charge rates established by the Texas Building and Procurement Commission. The Texas Bond Review Board may charge the following amounts necessary to recoup other costs as follows:

  • Computer resources charges (mainframe and programming time), as determined by the Department of Information Resources.
  • Copies of public records shall be furnished without charge or at a reduced charge if the Executive Director determines that waiver or reduction of the fee is in the public interest because furnishing the information can be considered as primarily benefiting the general public.
  • Any additional reasonable cost will be added at actual cost, with full disclosure to the requesting party as soon as it is known.
  • A reasonable deposit may be required for requests where the total charges may exceed $200.

All requests will be treated equally. The Executive Director may waive charges at his/her discretion.

If records are requested to be inspected instead of receiving copies, access will be by appointment only during regular business hours of the agency and will be at the discretion of the Executive Director. Confidential documents will not be made available for examination or copying except under court order or other directive.

All open records requests will be referred to the Executive Director or designee before the agency staff will release the information. For additional information please contact the agency at 512-463-1741. Please send open records requests to Open Records Request Contact .
