Records and Information Management Service [R&IMS]
Records and information management processes help you and the University get best value from its information resources. Following our guidelines ensures that you can:
- Create reliable records: so the University has the information that is needed to provide accurate evidence of activities or transactions that have taken place
- Locate records: information can be found and accessed, and the current version is identified clearly where multiple versions exist
- Understand records: who created the document and when, during which business process, and how the record is related to other records
- Maintain records for an appropriate time: so that information is managed and accessible for as long as is needed despite changes of format.
