Texas A&M-Central Texas maintains an active and ongoing records management program as required by Texas Government Code §441 and Texas A&M System Regulation 61.99.01. This program is designed to identify, preserve and protect state records in a consistent, efficient, and economical manner.
In order for the records management program to be effective University departments must establish an effective records management program and have in place management plans that best suit them. Departments are responsible for their own records retention, storage and timely disposal, but must comply with applicable state laws, system regulations and university procedures for records management.
What is Records Management?
Texas Administrative Code §441.180(7) defines Records Management as "the application of management techniques to the creation, use, maintenance, retention, preservation, and disposition of records for the purposes of improving the efficiency of recordkeeping, ensuring access to public information under the Public Information Act, and reducing costs." System Regulation 61.99.01 and University Standard Administrative Procedure 61.99.01.D1.01 establishes the requirements and processes of records management at TAMUCT.
All questions related to records management at TAMUCT should be directed to the Records Officer, Deserie Rivera. She can be reached by telephone at (254) 519-5722 and by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
