We’re happy to share more information with you.

WEDC is not simply following Wis. Stat. §19.31-39 ; we’re happy to provide more details. We’re here to serve Wisconsin and its residents, and you absolutely deserve to know how your tax dollars are being spent.

Wisconsin’s Public Records Law

Wisconsin has a long, proud tradition of open government. This tradition is embodied in our state’s public records law, Wis. Stat. §19.31-39 , which states that “it is declared to be the public policy of this state that all persons are entitled to the greatest possible information regarding the affairs of government and the official acts of those officers and employees who represent them.” The purpose of the law is to provide broad, practical access to the state government. To that end, the public has a right to inspect or receive a copy of certain records WEDC maintains.

Description of WEDC

WEDC is a public body corporate and politic created by state law. WEDC exists under the authority of Wis. Stat. §238. WEDC’s custodian of records is Chief Legal Officer Jennifer Campbell.

Procedure for requesting records from WEDC

Requests must be reasonably specific as to the subject matter and time period.

Online Request

The most efficient means of requesting records from WEDC is to complete our Online Public Records Request. That form is below.

Written Requests

If you are unable to access the online form or visit in person, you may submit a written request to:

Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation

Attn: Chief Legal Officer

2352 S. Park St., Suite 303
Madison, WI 53713

In-Person Request

WEDC records are available for inspection during normal business hours in our Madison office. Except for official state holidays, the normal hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

2352 S. Park St., Suite 303
Madison, WI 53713


WEDC may charge the actual, necessary, and direct cost of reproducing a record. When the request calls for a copy of a record and the record can be photocopied, WEDC may charge its standard fees of:

$0.135 per printed or photocopied page page (standard fee)

$0.0632 per-page fee for converting paper records to electronic format

$0.13 per CD or DVD

$5.02 for each 8GB flash drive

$6.53 for each 16GB flash drive

$10.08 for each 32GB flash drive

$18.52 for each 64GB flash drive

$32.21 for each 128GB flash drive

$53.81 for each 500GB flash drive

$60.14 for each 1TB flash drive

$74.83 for each 2TB flash drive

When requested and whenever practicable, WEDC will provide electronic copies of records that already exist in electronic format without charging reproduction fees on a per-page basis. However, if the record requested is not in a readily comprehensible form, WEDC may charge the actual cost of creating a readily comprehensible copy. WEDC will not charge for the cost of reviewing records for possible redaction or removal of confidential information. WEDC may charge the actual, necessary, and direct costs of locating the records if that cost exceeds $50. Any staff time for locating records will be billed at the hourly rate of salary for the lowest-paid employee capable of performing the task. The hourly rate charged for locating records may also include the cost of benefits but will not exceed $30 per hour. If the records are mailed or shipped to the requester, WEDC may charge the actual, necessary, and direct mailing or shipping cost.

The above fees apply except where a different fee is authorized by law. WEDC may request prepayment if the total costs are greater than $5. Make checks payable to Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation. Fees totaling less than $5 may be waived at WEDC’s discretion.


WEDC provides requested records “as soon as practicable and without delay” (Wis. Stat. §19.35(4)). The time it takes WEDC to respond to the request will depend on factors including the nature and extent of the request and the availability of staff and other resources necessary to process the request. If WEDC denies a written request, you have a right to receive the denial in writing.
