Record Retention Schedule

A Records Retention Schedule serves as a vital policy document that lists the various titles of records series (paper and electronic), length of time each record shall be retained, reason for its retention (i.e. legal, historical, fiscal, and administrative), and the disposition thereof. The city maintains one Citywide Master Schedule which captures those records commonly prepared, owned, used or retained by various city departments and should be referenced first. To maintain the integrity of records unique to departments, a retention schedule has been developed for each city department, and such department schedule should be referenced as well.
