ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

JULY 2014 - OPRA to Revise State Records Retention Schedules!

In the coming months, the Office of the Public Records Administrator (OPRA) will be revising all Connecticut Records Retention Schedules.  As each new schedule is issued, I will distribute it to the campus community as well as post it on SCSU’s Records and Information Management website at  http://www.southernct.edu/offices/records-and-info/ct-schedules.html. I urge you to read each new schedule carefully and to become familiar with its contents. As you do so, please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

The first revision, S1-Administrative Records Retention Schedule, is available here: http://southernct.edu/files/emailblast/20140711/s1administrative201405Revised.pdf. Please review this schedule carefully as the revision was extremely comprehensive—from 7 pages to 22 pages—and OPRA added many new Records Series to this document.

In addition, OPRA is going to revamp General Letter 2009-2,
Management & Retention of E-Mail & Other Electronic Messages as well as create an official policy for the retention of “born digital” records (those records that originate in digital form).

Finally, for your information, here is a link to the State of CT’s Records Management Program - http://www.ctstatelibrary.org/public-records-programs/state-records-management-program.

 In the meantime, if you have any questions or would like additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me at x26205 or koslowskip1@southernct.edu.

Thank you,
Phil Koslowski, MILS
