Public communications are responses to and releases of information to forms of media such as press releases, interviews, statements, letters to the editor, opinion pieces, social media (e.g., Facebook, Twitter) and internet and intranet posting.

The State is committed to keeping its citizens informed and is subject to public records requests.  In the interest of ensuring that information provided is accurate, promoting better and wider understanding of agency objectives and in compliance with applicable laws and regulations, agencies typically have a point of contact or process for handling public communications.

It is recommended that any requests for or plans to initiate public communication be submitted in accordance with an agency's media policy or through upper management or the agency's Public Information Officer.
