DBAA: Online Public Notices

Our next stop on the Alaska page of the State Agency Databases Across the Fifty States Project is:

Alaska Public Notices – List of all official public notices in Alaska State Government. Allows for notification updates by RSS and email. Dropdown search by category, department or publish date. A keyword search is also available. Categories of notices include: Agency Meetings,  Attorney General Opinions, Boards & Commissions, Grants, Procurement, Public Notices, Licensing Examinations, and Regulations.

By law, agencies in Alaska are required to post notices of activities in several places. The repository for all public notices is the Online Public Notice system run by the Lt. Governor’s Office. Here you will find all active public notices plus archived notices back to 2000. Prior to 2000, these announcements were posted in the Alaska Administrative Journal (AAJ). The Online Public Notice system does link to an AAJ archive and the AAJ is also available at Alaska Depository Libraries.

This is also the place to learn about proposed regulations before they are adopted, by looking through the section: Regulations: Notice of Proposed Regulations. The proposed regulation notices are sorted by date, then by department. Each notice will summarize the proposed regulatory change and link to the proposed text and in some cases, other background material. The notice will also tell you how and where to comment.

Check it out. Come back and leave a comment if something surprised you.
