The University's Record Management Program is designed to ensure that we remain in compliance with State record keeping laws.
Benefit 1 - Offers Legal Protection: Adhering to the TWU Record Retention Schedule and disposing of records accordingly helps protect us from legal risk.
Benefit 2 - Increases Efficiency (Frees Up Time and Space): Ensures that important records are organized and maintained so the records are 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 3 - Reduce Costs: Freeing up storage space and improving efficiency, helps keep cost down because records will use less physical and virtual space.
Benefit 4 - Improves Pubic Perception: Dispose of records regularly so you aren't getting rid of a large quantity of records this can give the University a negative public perceptions.
Benefit 5 - Protects Essential Records: An active records management program help protect TWU's vital, historical and permanent records from environmental or physical dangers.
