Records Retention Management


The University's Record Management Program is designed to ensure that we remain in compliance with State record keeping laws.

What Are the Benefits of Using the Texas Woman’s University Retention Schedule?

Benefit 1 - Ensures that important records are organized and maintained in such a way as to be easily retrieved and identifiable as evidence of TWU’s activities (especially in the event of an audit, a Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) request, or a discovery in a lawsuit). 

Benefit 2 - Conserves office space and equipment by only storing active records.

Benefit 3 - Saves money by moving inactive files to inactive storage areas (determined by the department) until the records are ready for final disposition.

Benefit 4 - Helps preserve those records that are valuable for historical or other research purposes.

Benefit 5 - Controls the growth of records in offices through the systematic disposition of unneeded records.
