Updating Our Computer Catalog
The final step of the disposition process is to update the Records Management computer system to reflect the disposed material. Even though material may process out of the facility, it remains in the data system, flagged as disposed. This means that Records Management can tell you not only what is currently in storage, but also all files which have been disposed. The exception to this are those records disposed before the digital tracking system was adopted in June of 1994. Box and File data on those records was not retained.
