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.

Services include:

  • Consulting with state agencies on a variety of records management and public records topics
  • Assisting state agencies in updating or amending records retention and disposition schedules
  • Providing records management training through a series of workshops

Please Note: It is the responsibility of each state agency to have a records retention and disposition schedule in place, and to notify the Government Records Section of any changes that might affect the schedule. Records may be destroyed only as allowed by the Functional Schedule for North Carolina State Agencies, adopted December 1, 2017. The consistent and routine implementation of the disposition instructions listed in the schedule provides the proper and legal foundation for the disposition of public records through destruction or transfer to the State Records Center.

Boards and Commissions

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.
