An important function of Records Management is to provide in-office consulting services to those who are modifying or creating record keeping systems. Involving Records Management in your planning process will ensure that your systems will not only serve your immediate needs, but also allow your records to move smoothly through the retention and disposition processes.
Records Management can provide suggestions on creating a file plan, purging of files, in-office retention, discarding of duplicate materials, orderly filing, and other related issues. Records Management can be especially helpful in planning for the conversion of paper-based business processes to digital processes, and creating preservation and access strategies for digital content.
There is no charge for any of these services. Contact the Records Manager or Contact the Records Analyst for more details.
