The Commission is the approving body of all records retention schedules. If you need to make a revision to your agency's schedule, contact your Records Analyst.

Digital Publications

A state agency publication or report is any published material, regardless of format, that documents agency-related functions or activities but does not include material issued for internal administrative use. Publications and reports contain important facts and statistics about the operation of the agency and its policies and are retained permanently because they provide information, often in summarized form, which aids in understanding the administrative functioning of the agency.
