Any authorized officer or employee of the Department of Records shall have the right to examine the records of any office, department, board or commission to determine the manner in which they are maintained.
Sources: See Annotation to Section 5-1100.
Purposes: In order to enable the Department of Records properly to fulfill its functions, authorized officers and employees of the Department are given the right to examine the records of any administrative agency for the purpose of determining the manner in which they are being maintained. This right does not extend to records of the Council because a proper respect for the separation of the legislative and administrative functions of government requires that the administrative branch shall not have the unlimited right to deal with the records of the legislative branch.
