Records and Information Management

Starting from scratch?

Previous records officers may not have left information about what records management work they did, so this page is a starting point to finding, accessing, and updating records and information management information for your agency.

Who's who at your agency?

View and update your agency's records officers and other role assignments at the Records Officer Hub. Detailed how-to instructions are in our Learning Center.

Your agency's retention schedules

Your agency may already have created retention schedules. 

For local agencies, retention schedules are most likely documented in resolutions, ordinances, or code. 

For state agencies and some local agencies, retention schedules are documented within State Archives' system.
