Records Management

All public agencies are responsible for applying efficient and effective management methods for the creation, use, maintenance, retention, destruction, and preservation of records created and received in the course of agency business. In 2008, oversight of the management of public records was consolidated under the authority the Secretary of State, charging the Vermont State Archives and Records Administration with administering and implementing a statewide records management program in accordance with professional records and information management practices and principles.

Records Analysis

The Records Analysis Unit assists public agencies in meeting their record-keeping requirements by collaborating with public agencies to develop and implement records retention and disposition policies (also known as record schedules) that are justified and defensible if challenged; and by offering training to state records officers and liaisons as well as municipal officials.
