Managing and overseeing information compliance at UW

Required by RCW 40.14, Records Management Services manages and oversees compliance with state and federal laws and regulations relating to the preservation and destruction of information created and received by the University. The University and the State of Washington have designated us as the legal authority for determining how long electronic and paper records must be retained. We are responsible for establishing standards that ensure the legal legitimacy of University record-keeping systems. Learn More →

WHAT'S NEW

Follow these steps if you need to save an independent copy of a webpage for retention purposes or when it is subject to a destruction hold.  This resource shows how to save a copy of a webpage and its components, including video or other embedded files.

Bookmarks allow you to create a personalized records retention schedule and quickly reference your office's departmental schedule and/or scanning policy.

We revised and updated the Vital Records section of our webpage to focus on electronic records and make it easier to start a vital records initiative in your office or department.
