Safeguards Against Improper Disposition
No record is ever disposed without an approved retention schedule that has been signed by the Records Manager, the Records Custodian, and a representative of the Records Management Policy Committee. Until this document is signed and in place, all records are retained. The Records Manager is only authorized to dispose of records for which the retention scheduling process has been properly followed.
In addition, once the schedule is in place, the Records Custodian will be notified in advance of any records to be disposed, and be given the opportunity to place those records on hold if necessary. See the Disposition section of this website for more information on this process.
