Best Practices for File-Naming
The document and an additional video series can help make you and your office more efficient with a few simple rules for file naming. Just like paper files, electronic files need to be well-organized and labeled correctly so that they are identifiable and accessible by all employees. This is especially important for government offices in order to comply with legal requirements to ensure the availability, integrity, accessibility, and, if appropriate, the confidentiality of public records. G.S §132-8.1 provides that each agency shall establish and maintain an active, continuing program for the economical and efficient management of records of that agency.
