The University's information stewards are the senior administrators with overall responsibility for a functional area of University administration (e.g., finance, human resources), who therefore also have overall responsibility for the University records created and used in these areas of administration.
Information stewards provide strategic oversight of information/records management and compliance with Policy 46 – Information Management. They are rarely involved in operational information management, which is the responsibility of the University's information custodians.
The Directory of Administrative Information Stewards is the authoritative and complete list of information stewards and their areas of responsibility. The directory is maintained by the Administrative Information Governance Committee (AIGC).
Each WatClass records retention schedule lists the information stewards for the information within its scope.
The roles and responsibilities of information stewards, information custodians, information users, and information service providers are defined in Policy 46.
