Developing a Retention + Disposal Schedule
The development of a functional retention and disposal schedule involves the analysis of business functions and activities, to identify the records created, and determine how long these records need to be kept. Once compiled, a schedule is assessed and authorised by the State Archivist, and can be actioned without further reference to OSA.
Developing a schedule is a major project, so contact OSA to discuss proposed timetables. OSA will provide guidance to the agency during the drafting of the schedule, including review, advice and commentary via ORDA, our web-based retention and disposal development tool.
