Records Management

Records Management
Institutional Header
A systematic records management program adds value to the daily functions of the staff. The University benefits when proper records management is practiced by the staff. The benefits are:
  • Organizing information for retrieval when needed.
  • Protecting records that are essential to mission-critical business operations.
  • Ensuring compliance with legal and regulatory recordkeeping requirements, thereby avoiding costly fines or other penalties.
  • Reducing risks in litigations, government investigations, and the legal discovery process.
  • Reducing labor requirements for the creation, organization, retrieval and dissemination of recorded information.
  • Minimizing storage requirements (space, equipment, and supplies) for a given quantity of records.  Destroy or delete records according to the University's records retention schedules.  Records schedules can be found here.
  • Reducing the time and effort required to reconstruct vital information in the event of disaster, theft, and other losses.
