Attention DBO Self-Service Portal Users: Important Changes Coming in June 2020

The Department of Business Oversight is committed to providing a Self-Service Portal that is accessible to all users regardless of physical ability. In furtherance of this goal, the DBO Self-Service Portal will be modified to display search results in an index format only starting June 26, 2020. This means that users will no longer be able to view copies of the actual document. The DBO Self-Service Portal will display search results with the following parameters:

  • Date range for searchable public records will be limited to the past 10 years
  • Search results will no longer be hyperlinked to viewable documents

If a user wishes to view a copy of a document indexed in the DBO Self-Service Portal, they may submit a Public Records Act request through the Department’s website at
