Recordkeeping

Records provide evidence of the business activities and processes you undertake on behalf of the University. Records can be in any format such as:

  • emails
  • spreadsheets
  • maps and plans
  • minutes
  • memos
  • photographs
  • audio-visual material

Information created or received in the course of conducting University business should be captured in a recordkeeping system, either the Electronic Records Management System (ERMS) or an Enterprise System.
