Services for Government

Retention and Disposal

  • Retention and Disposal Schedules

    • Retention & Disposal Schedules identify all of the records that are maintained by government agencies, regardless of format. Schedules define how long records need to be retained to satisfy administrative, fiscal, legal and historical requirements, and they specify if/when records can be destroyed. Schedules are legal documents approved by an agency, Records Management Services, Archives of Michigan, Auditor General (state government only), Attorney General (state government only), and the State Administrative Board. Approved schedules provide the only legal authority to destroy public records.
