The Archives Division, Records Management Branch (RMB) helps State executive and legislative agencies to answer record keeping questions, such as:

“How long must these records be kept?”
“My agency is running out of storage space. Where else can we store inactive records?”
“How can records be confidentially destroyed?”

The RMB assists agencies to answer these types of questions and efficiently manage records by:

  • operating a State Records Center, a facility that stores inactive non-permanent paper records and security copies of microfilms and microfiche,
  • developing Records Retention and Disposition Schedules that authorize agencies to systematically dispose of non-permanent records and identify records of permanent value, and
  • helping to develop Records Management Policies and serving as a resource to answer agency questions about record keeping policies, laws and practices.
