If you are an employee of another state agency, a parish or city government, or a member of the public and are requesting confidential data (see box below), a data use agreement must be executed before the data can be released. To provide the information required for a DUA, please complete and sign the External Request for Use of Confidential Data form and return to email@example.com.
