Records retention schedules are determined by the record type and the business, legal and compliance requirements associated with the record. Retention schedules establish guidelines regarding how long important records must remain accessible for future use or reference, as well as when and how the record can be destroyed when it is no longer needed. If a record does not have a retention schedule it must be kept indefinitely.
These Retention Schedules are for LOCAL GOVERNMENT AGENCIES ONLY. Please go to the States Records Services page for more information about records retention for state agencies.
