Creating and using records is a vital part of everyday University activities. We need records to work effectively and demonstrate how we comply with our legal and regulatory requirements.
Records are defined as "recorded information", in any form and regardless of media, created or received by the University and used in delivering our core business functions and activities. It is the content and context, which is significant, not the format.
The importance and value of records lies in their role "as evidence" of what has taken place. Records provide an accurate, authentic and complete account of the University's actions, transactions, decisions and commitments.
Some records may not be current, however they may be retained for evidential, informational and/or historical value for the longer term.
