Online AORO Registration

This page allows agency open records officers to complete their registration form and provide updates online. To access your agency's update form, please enter your agency name in the search field below and click the edit symbol on the left-hand side. Then, make the appropriate updates to your Open Records Officer contact information and click submit. Once the information is submitted to the OOR, we will send an e-mail confirming the changes. The OOR will review the information and update the public AORO database in five business days. Here are step-by-step instructions to guide you through the process.

If your agency is not listed in the OOR's AORO database, please complete the Agency Open Records Officer Registration form and submit the completed form to the Office of Open Records by email, fax (717-425-5343), or regular mail. When completing the form, please include the Agency Open Records Officer's name, business address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address, and the name of the agency represented, including the department, if applicable. In addition, please indicate whether the agency is in compliance with information posting requirements under the RTKL.
