Updates to the State Agency General Schedule

An updated version of the General Retention and Disposition Schedule for New York State Government Records (General Schedule) was issued in September 2016. This webinar will discuss in detail the 2016 revisions to the General Schedule which included: 
  • updates to the Fiscal Operations section of the Schedule to cover records related to the Statewide Financial System (SFS) and to standardize most retention periods to 6 years         
  • waiver of the imaging certification statement and requirement that agencies submit a separate  records disposition request for destruction of original records after scanning or microfilming
  • updates to existing items based on changes to legal requirements since the last revision of the Schedule

This webinar is produced through the State Archives Documentary Heritage and Preservation Services for New York program.
