Records & Archives provides a comprehensive records management program for the University of Arizona. We assist departments in establishing efficient systems and procedures for the storage and retrieval of information, and in determining retention and disposition schedules that conform to legal, administrative, and fiscal requirements.
Per A.R.S. § 41-151.15, all individuals who handle records of any type on behalf of the University are responsible for ensuring the records in their care are handled safely, securely, and properly. Furthermore, these individuals must be cognizant that all records generated by the University (per Records & Archives definition of a record) are the property of the Arizona Board of Regents and are subject to the retention policies and procedures put in place by Records & Archives, the University of Arizona, and the State of Arizona.
Departments must notify Records & Archives immediately if any legal, administrative, audit, or other holds are placed on any records being stored by Records & Archives. For records being stored outside of Records & Archives to which a hold applies, e.g., in a digital records storage environment or other departmental records storage area, departments must make arrangements for those records to be held as well. Conversely, Records & Archives should be notified whenever any holds are removed from any records being stored by Records & Archives. See Retention Schedule Policy > Litigation Holds for more information.
