The Department of Natural and Cultural Resources and The University of North Carolina (UNC) System have approved the adoption of a new records retention and disposition schedule for UNC System Institutions. The schedule incorporates new records series that were not a part of the 2007 schedule and amends the disposition instructions for a number of other series.

Some of the most significant changes include adding a section that addresses the records related to grants and research, adding a section that addresses legal records, and making clarifications about which records should transfer to University Archives for permanent preservation. Unless otherwise noted, the UNC General Records Retention and Disposition Schedule applies to all records regardless of format.

If your office has an older departmental or program schedule, then you should contact 6-TECH at (336) 256-8324 or so that the schedule can be reviewed.

The State Archives of North Carolina offers several resources related to records management, including workshops and online tutorials. Please visit the State Archives’ Records Management Services and Training website for more information.
