Patricia Smith-Mansfield and Tracy Hansen, 2015 Electronic Records Conference

Tracy Hansen, Ogden City Recorder, was awarded The Utah State Archives’ Excellence in Information Governance Award at our annual electronic records conference on Thursday, October 22, 2015.

Tracy has many accomplishments as a records officer, here are just a few.

Tracy has been working closely with the City’s IT Division to update the current records management program. This includes overseeing the implementation of a training program for new employees as part of their on-boarding process, as well as annual training for current employees relative to records management in their particular division. She understands the importance of educating employees on their roles in managing the City’s records.

Tracy has made it a priority to make significant changes throughout the organization regarding how people view records management; including resurrecting the City’s Records Committee which has not been active for many years. Tracy has also worked with the Communications and Marketing Division to include a records related article each month in the City’s internal employee newsletter. The goal is to educate the employees about what the Recorders Office has to offer them relative to records management.

While proactively taking on these projects to improve and update Ogden’s records management program Tracy continues working on existing, ongoing records projects to ensure the proper identification, scheduling, scanning and indexing to preserve the City’s records and history.

Way to go Tracy!
