Records Management (RM) is the discipline of managing records in any format throughout their “lifecycle” from creation or capture through to their ultimate destruction/disposal.
Good RM ensures that the University manages its records appropriately so that the right people can access the right records at the right time. It also means that we only keep information for as long as is necessary.
Under section 61 of FOISA the Scottish Ministers have published a Code of Practice on Records Management which sets out practices which public authorities should follow in relation to the creation, keeping, management and final disposal of their records.
The information and guidance contained in the Records Management pages will help staff to manage their records in line with the Code of Practice.
