The following electronic records do not have to be saved or printed because they are extracted from a master file or database.  Reports printed from a database are considered duplicates and can be destroyed as soon as they have served their reference purpose. They will be visible and accessible for their full retention period in the system of record and can be reprinted as needed. You should never print e-mails - the official copy is the original digital version.

For those rare sponsored budgets that do not submit financial status reports at least annually, you will need to continue to keep your own copies of ISDs, CTIs, and invoices for the full retention period. (See the Research and Grant/Contract Records Section of the UW General Schedule).
