resources for records management liaisons
Records management is the ongoing process of organizing, storing, and destroying information in ways that ensure compliance with applicable legislation and protect the university from legal and financial risk. That is why we require each university office to appoint a records management liaison to oversee the management of that office's records and to communicate changes in records management policy.
The duties of records management liaisons include:
- serving as the main point of contact for UARMS staff;
- working with UARMS staff to archive permanent records;
- using and promoting in their offices the General Records Retention and Disposition Schedule;
- coordinating records management events and participation within their office.
Records Management Services provides support to help liaisons make decisions regarding the organization, maintenance, destruction, and transfer of public records, whether confidential or open to inspection, digital or paper, current or inactive.
