University records are the recorded information, in any format or medium, created or received and used by the University in the course of administrative transactions or activities, which provide evidence of these transactions or activities.
The University Records Management Office mission is to provide advice and guidance to all administrators and staff on the management of the University's records to help ensure that the University meets its statutory, regulatory and accountability obligations, maintains its corporate memory and has ready access to the information it needs to achieve its strategic goals.
The decision to implement a formal records management program was driven by the university's required compliance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA). However, there are many other benefits to practicing good records management in your office. Our goal is to make your life easier by helping you manage your records throughout their lifecycle (creation, active use, and disposition). We can help you decide what to keep and what to throw away, organize your records so that you can find things more easily, and thus save space and time.
