This policy sample can be used by auditors to ensure that all privileged and protected records are assigned and categorized.
In this sample, a record will normally be kept in a department so long as it is active. Retention periods should be assigned to records that are no longer active. Documents that carry a permanent retention period should be either stored in the department or sent to the inactive file administrator for safekeeping. After a retention period is assigned for documents without permanent retention periods, put records with the same retention periods in the same boxes.
