A records Retention and Disposal Schedule or also known as a Retention and Disposal Authority protects the interests of the organisation and its stakeholders by ensuring that its records meet operational needs, comply with legal requirements and are retained or disposed of securely.
Destroying or discarding records too soon poses legal issues, but keeping records too long wastes space and time, potentially increases risk, costs money and can make retrieval more difficult.

We check with or refer to state and / or federal records and archiving offices to ensure your schedule is implemented in accordance with their requirements.
