RDS review and implementation.

A retention disposal schedule outlines when a record should be disposed of. Although some retention schedules are available through local archives, these only cover general administrative functions. It is recommended organisations create their own schedules to ensure legislative recordkeeping compliance and that organisational best practices are in place.

Similar to a BCS review, we recommend reviewing retention disposal schedules;

  • At least every two years
  • When there is a change in business activity
  • After a machinery of government (MOG) change
  • When an RDS has been changed

Our team of specialists assists organisations with creating, reviewing and implementing retention disposal schedules. We identify organisational and legislative requirements, review existing schedules and business procedures to identify any issues that may exist, and provide recommendations for improvement of procedures, grouping of records and alignment of RDS and BCS.
