Retention and Disposition Schedules
A records retention and disposition schedule is a list of records series titles that indicates the minimum length of time to maintain each series and what should happen once the retention period has been met; also called a "retention schedule."
The State Archives has authority over the retention and disposition of local government and state agency records. It issues retention schedules for both types of governments. Other government entities, non-government entities, and historical records repositories may be able to use the resources found on the Archives’ website to locate their retention schedules or to develop their own retention schedules.
