Office of Public Records and Audit

Public Records and Audit is an administrative office of CSULB that assists management at all levels and in all divisions with public records requests, assessing administrative risks and evaluating the controls designed to address these risks.

Services

Public Records Requests and Access

Requests for records often involve interpretation of several laws and policies that govern the release of information. Regulations such as the California Public Records Act, the McKee Transparency Act, and the California Information Practices Act provide for public access to certain records, but at the same time provide exemptions for the protection of personal privacy. Public records are any writing or recording containing information relating to the conduct of the public’s business which has been prepared, owned, used, or retained by the University regardless of physical form or characteristics.

To provide efficient, proper, and consistent response to public records requests, records requests must be processed by the Office of Public Records and Audit, and should be forwarded by email to publicrecords@csulb.edu.

Audits and Reviews

CSULB is subject to audit by various external auditors such as the trustees' auditors from the Chancellor's Office, our financial statement auditors - KPMG, the Bureau of State Audits and various other government agencies.

The Office of Public Records and Audit coordinates its audit coverage with external auditors to minimize overlap and duplication.

Copyright and Fair Use

The university policies addressing copyright and fair use provide information regarding campus compliance with the Copyright Act of 1976 and all subsequent amendments including, but not limited to, the digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 and the Teach Act of 2002.

Whistleblower Resources

Whistleblower Complaints
