The beginning of a new fiscal year has arrived, and the records management team wants to remind you that now is a good time to catch up on your records housekeeping. Is there a filing cabinet that no one has cleaned out in recent memory? Now is a great time to do some weeding. Are there records that haven’t met their retention stacking up in a forgotten corner of the office? Email Stephanie.email@example.com for guidance on how to box records and have them delivered to the ORMO’s storage vault.
The Okanagan Records Management Program will oversee an annual shred day in May, where all boxes of records in our program for which retention has expired will be marked for destruction. Don’t worry – we are careful to get permission from department heads before putting any box into the shred queue.
We would love to hear from you with any questions or comments you may have!
