Retention Schedules

Retention Schedules are timetables that indicate how long a record has business value. Records are appraised according to the following criteria: administrative, fiscal, legal and historical value. Once the value has been fulfilled, one of two things happen: the records are destroyed, or they are preserved for permanent use. Often permanent records are transferred to the Archives for access and long-term care. Before a record can be destroyed, erased, deleted, or made otherwise unavailable, a retention schedule for that record must be established and approved by the State Records Committee.
