Records play a vital role in the overall operation of all state government agencies. They serve as an organization's memory, as a record of past events and as a basis for future actions. No government activity can be accomplished without the documented evidence contained in records.
Every record goes through a life cycle, which begins with its creation and ends with its disposition. Effective records management is more than just a filing and storage system, its the control of recorded information.
The bottom line is that records retention management will help make Eastern Washington University more efficient, more productive, minimize supply and equipment costs, improve storage systems and protect against litigation risks regarding record keeping practices.
"Our ability to control information has not kept pace with our capacity to produce it."
Please call the University Records Retention Manager for assistance with your records.
