Abstract: The ALMA Archive Group is an international collaboration with contributions from various institutions from four continents including the Canadian Astronomy Data Centre (CADC). One of the deliverables of this group is the ALMA Science Archive (ASA) which will allow the astronomical community to browse and access the complex raw and processed data sets stored in the ALMA front-end archive (AFA). ALMA data will be available through the ASA without restrictions after a nominal proprietary period of one year. Here we describe the design and functionality of the ALMA Request Handler, the component of the ALMA Science Archive which will manage user requests and provide user access to both publicly available and proprietary ALMA data. The Request Handler is designed with portability in mind, and may also be deployed at the CADC and the European Southern Observatory (ESO).
