Data Practices Information



Who can request information?

Anyone can request information including the public, the media, government agencies, government employees, vendors, unions, companies, and attorneys. Use the guide for requesting general information (PDF).

How do you make a data practices request?

Contact the Data Practices staff by letter, email, telephone, or fax to request information. You can submit the request in your own words or use the data practices request form (PDF).

Tip: Send your request directly to the Data Practices Office. Sending your request to a different office, or to the generic MnDOT address, may cause your request to be lost or delay our receipt of it.

When will you get the information?

If you are requesting data about yourself, MnDOT must furnish the information within 10 business days of receiving your request. For other requests, MnDOT staff must furnish information within a reasonable period of time. Generally, MnDOT completes requests within six weeks of receiving them unless they are quite complex or involved.
