How Kansas Defines a Public Record
The Kansas Open Records Act defines a public record as any “recorded information, regardless of form or characteristics, which is made, maintained or kept by or is in the possession of any public agency.”

It also states that “regardless of form or characteristics means that public records are not restricted to written records” and that “computer data is a record.”

“State of Kansas agencies that choose to enhance their communications strategies by utilizing social media in carrying out their functions/missions must do so in ways that maintain good order and discipline, network security, comply with public records retention legal requirements and ensure consistency with State and agency media standards.”
