June 23, 2017 - The workgroup submitted a roadmap for future improvement recommendations​ to Gov. Brown. 

The multi-year approach is incremental, yet comprehensive, consisting of key strategies and recommended actions​ intended to improve state agency organization of records and the response to requests for them. 

Feb. 15, 2017 - Following months of work by state agency representatives, DAS adopted a standard fee structure that agencies will use when considering requests for records. The fees represent not-to-exceed amounts and don't prevent an agency from waiving fees altogether. 

DAS will accept agency feedback on the fee structure for 90 days, then begin a formal process to establish the fee structure in administrative rule.
