Government Records News

Hello.  Last week I finalized Government Records July monthly report and I thought would share with you some of the tasks/projects that our staff accomplished in July. 

The analysts of the the state agency unit completed the following retention and disposition schedules.   For the Governor’s Office: Administration, Deputy Chief of Staff, Governor’s Scheduling Office, and the Executive Mansion. For the Dept. of Revenue: Tax Compliance/Special Projects Unit, DPPD – File Development Unit, DPPD – Amusement Tax/Alcoholic Beverages, and DPPD – Exceptions and Registrations.  For the Dept. of Insurance: Administration/Chief Deputy Commissioner.  Finally, for the Dept. of Commerce: Office of the Commissioner of Banks.  These schedules are available online at

 The staff of the local records program delivered two offsite records management workshops with 54 attendees.  One of these workshops was offered to Town of Carolina Beach staff and the other was offered at a statewide meeting for Local Education Agency Finance Managers in RTP.

 Our state agency services unit had a very productive month conducting 944 searches for records stored at our records center facilities.  Unit staff also received from various state agencies 1,091 cu. ft. of records into our facilities.

 Upcoming Events:

 I am pleased to announce that staff spent considerable time updating all of our workshops over the summer, so content in each focus on timely topics.   In September, the state agency analysts will begin offering workshops twice a month at the StateRecordsCenter in Raleigh.  Keep an eye out for dates and topics; they will be posted to the blog shortly.

 Local records analysts will be offering a series of regional workshops from late August through September.  See the following blog post for more details.

 Also, on the local records analysts’ plates is an update to the Municipal Retention Schedule which has been in place since 2009.  They are currently in the review stage, so the official schedule should be ready for signatures shortly. 

 Hopefully this briefly blog entry has provided you with some additional insight into the operations of Government Records.
