Records management

Records need to be systematically maintained. This is not just because they contain valuable information, but because that information is evidence of what we do. We need records so we can show how we pursue our business objectives and fulfil our legal obligations.

Records management relates to the control of records, regardless of format, from creation to disposal. Disposal usually means confidential destruction, but records of historic value can be offered to Derbyshire Record Office.

The corporate records manager is responsible for developing the records management framework and providing guidance and advice on all aspects of record keeping.

The records management service leads on:

  • development, review and renewal of retention schedules.
  • management of modern records, the central repository for core records such as agreements, contracts and deeds
  • management of the contract for disposal of confidential waste
  • management of the contract for offsite record storage

To contact the records manager, email or tel: 01629 539203.
