Records Management Overview

Why do we care about our retaining and managing our records?

Because they are our organization’s institutional memory that…

  • Document our management decisions…
  • Provide historical references of transactions and events…
  • Enhance our organization’s operational efficiencies…
  • Demonstrate regulatory compliance…
  • Provide litigation support…

Two key concepts to embrace to effectively retain and manage records are the records lifecycle and elements of a records management program.
