Records Retention Rules - the Big Bucket Approach
We know the records you should be keeping and how long to keep them. We also know the risk that records create if they are not kept for the correct period of time or are not disposed of when they are no longer useful. Our clients are confident about their retention rules after we have reviewed the legal requirements for records retention.
iGMapware will assist you in developing legally compliant retention rules specific to your industry and the work you do. In this process, similar records are grouped together under bigger, overarching retention buckets - or 'rules.' One retention period for keeping those records (and the timeline for destruction) is then applied to the specific records in that rule. Retention periods are based on how long the laws and regulations state those records need to be kept, as well as your organization's business needs, which may be longer than what is legally required. This is known as a "Big Bucket Retention Schedule."
Our consultants evaluate the components and resources of your current records management program. Knowing what it will take to achieve industry best practices and having a roadmap to get there is one of iGMapware's services that our clients value the most. Appropriate resources are often secured based on these assessments.
