Record Management

Records management is the practice of identifying, classifying, archiving, preserving, and destroying  records. Almost every activity of business or government is accomplished or documented through some form of record.  Under State Government Article 10-633, each unit of State Government must have a program for the continual, economical, and efficient management of the records of the unit.

The Department of General Services (DGS) is responsible for developing programs for the efficient management of State, county and local Government records.  DGS is also responsible for assisting State personnel in developing records retention and disposal schedules and reviewing proposed records retention and disposal schedules.
