Public Records and Small Businesses with Government Contracts

Florida is known for having one of the broadest public records laws in the United States. It extends to businesses who have certain government contracts. Until recently, this only applied government contracts in excess of $10 million. The latest legislative session removed the requirement and now it applies to all government contracts.

Failing to comply with a public records request has very serious consequences. The most prominent ones are having to pay for the costs and attorney’s fees of the party brining suit against you and even having your contract cancelled.
