The Department Records Retention reference guide can assist departments in knowing how long they should retain financial and personnel related source documents. In many cases the retention period for departmental records has been extended. This is due to the decentralization of processing since the implementation of the SAP administrative system. Some source documents previously retained in Accounts Payable or Payroll are now only available in the originating department. Sensitive, financial or confidential records should be shredded before disposal.
It is important to note that the records retention period for grant activity is different than for non-grant activity. Click here.
