Yes. The public site and Team Pasco are both required to be compliant. The easiest way to differentiate a complaint document from a non-compliant document posted on our website, is to look for the “_WCAG” tag. This will make it easier when performing audits in the future.
Yes. We cannot ask an outside source to provide us with a compliant document. However, we can ask if there is a compliant version of such document and if it can be provided. It is important to note that any document provided by an outside source that is NOT compliant and posted on our website, will become Pasco County’s responsibility regardless of where the document originated from. We cannot provide two separate versions of such document, example: a not compliant version and a compliant version. All of the information posted on our website needs to be available in a compliant form for everyone to access regardless of disability.

Public records are defined as all documents, papers, letters, maps, books, tapes, photographs, films, sound recordings, data processing software or other material, regardless of physical form or characteristics or means of transmission, made or received pursuant to law or ordinance or in connection with the transaction of official business by any agency. It is critical to understand that format, media type, or duplication does not affect the public record status of information created or received by a public agency.
The Public Records Request Administrative Policies and Procedures Manual (100-10) can be found below.
Public records requests can be received through mail, email, walk-in, telephone, or via GovQA in the Customer Service Center online. The law does not require the requester to identify themselves, or put the request in writing.
Departments receiving PRRs will acknowledge and produce the requested records within a “reasonable” amount of time. The requester will be acknowledged by the receiver and/or the PRR system immediately. The easier it is to comply with the request, the shorter the amount of time it should take to produce.
Public Records must be maintained in accordance with the State of Florida General Records Schedule for State and Local Government Agencies.

Air within a confined space should be monitored prior to entry in the following order: Oxygen - test for oxygen first in order to be sure you get an accurate LEL reading.
