Requesting, Serving, and Enforcing Subpoenas

A party may request a “subpoena” to require the attendance of a witness or a “subpoena duces tecum” to require the production of a document and/or record. A party shall file with the Board a completed request for subpoena prior to the scheduled hearing date. The Board shall prepare the subpoena and return the subpoena to the requesting party for service.

Serving subpoenas is required. After you’re issued a subpoena from the Arizona State Personnel Board, you may contact the responding party and ask if they will accept service. If so, you can supply the subpoena(s) to the responding party by email and ensure you receive a confirmation email. Service can also be made personal delivery of the subpoena(s) to the responding party by a person who is not a party in this matter and over 18 years old.

If enforcement of a subpoena for appearance of a witness is necessary, enforcement proceedings shall be taken to Superior Court by the party requesting enforcement, and enforcement shall be determined by the Superior Court. The party requesting enforcement shall name the Board as a party to any proceedings. The Board shall follow any orders entered by the Court.

Public Records Request

Consistent with public records law, including A.R.S. § 39-121, the Arizona State Personnel Board strives to provide current, accurate, and timely information to the public and media.

Public records requests can be submitted for hearing audio, files, documents and other records. Our response depends on the scope of the request and the resources necessary to process your request. The Arizona State Personnel Board refrains from interpreting records or data that are released from our office. Should you have any inquiries, we advise you to seek guidance from your legal counsel.
