In order to determine agency compliance with the records and forms management program, the Records Management Section will conduct periodic reviews of existing records management programs in state agencies. The purpose of the following sections is to provide an outline of the areas that will be evaluated during the records management review.
The information management analyst will develop a report which summarizes the findings and recommendations of the review for the agency director.
The report is intended to provide the agency with information required to maintain their records management program accurately and in compliance with applicable North Dakota Century Code statutes.
The Records Management Program is responsible for the preservation of state records. This includes determining retention periods, selecting the appropriate retention medium, choosing the best retention location, and selecting the best filing system for the records.
