State Agency Records Services and Training
Records management services are extended to all agencies and departments in North Carolina state government. Working with the agency's Chief Records Officer, a record analyst is assigned to each agency or department to give guidance to agencies on the full range of records management issues and services.
Please Note: It is the responsibility of each state agency to have a records retention and disposition schedule in place, to keep it up to date, and to notify the Government Records Section of any changes affecting the schedule.
Records may be destroyed only as allowed by either the General Schedule for State Agency Records or the program records schedule developed for your office. The consistent and routine implementation of the disposition instructions listed in these schedules provides the proper and legal foundation for the disposition of public records through destruction or transfer to the State Records Center.
The records generated by independent boards and commissions are governed by North Carolina Public Records Laws. For assistance with records retention issues contact Emily Sweitzer at (919) 807-7360.
