Find Agency Open Records Officers

The OOR maintains a database of Agency Open Records Officer ("AORO") contact information for every registered agency in the Commonwealth. This AORO database allows the public to contact the correct AORO to request agency records and ensures that the OOR can contact AOROs in the event an appeal is filed with the OOR.

To use the search form, at least one field must be selected. Note that sometimes entering all or part of an agency name and no "County" or "Type" may be the best way to find a matching agency due to variations in spelling (e.g., "Mount" vs. "Mt.") or other discrepancies in the data.

If you have difficulty using the online search form or have any questions, please contact the OOR at (717) 346-9903 or
