Minnesota Government Data Practices Act Information
The Minnesota Government Data Practices Act (MGDPA) regulates the management of government data that is collected, created, received or released by a governmental entity. The MGDPA can be found in Chapter 13 of Minnesota Statutes.
The MGDPA requires the county to prepare and post a list of the records or forms that include private or confidential data on individuals. These lists have been developed by each department within the county and are updated annually.
