This guide is designed to provide basic information about records management and does not cover every applicable law, policy, or procedure. You should contact the University Records Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
Records management is the systematic and administrative control of records through out their life cycle to ensure efficiency and economy in their creation, use, handling, control, maintenance, and disposition. The University Records Manager is responsible for developing University-wide records management policies and services, maintaining records retention schedules, and for assisting with the collection and preservation of selected University records and associated materials of the University.
The State of Florida defines public records through record retention schedules which describe a record or series of records and assigns a retention period [Chapter 1B-24, F.A.C.] State law also outlines requirements for the disposal of public records and assigns these responsibilities to a designated Records Management Liaison Officer (RMLO.) The University Records Manager fulfils this requirement and liaises with the Division of Library and Information Services.
