Basic Records Management
Basic Records Management will consider the importance of records, legal responsibilities for keeping records, definition of a record, identifying vital records, COOP planning, and email management. This session is presented by Lorianne Ouderkirk, Records Analyst.
Records Inventory introduces participants to the planning and implementation of a records inventory. Participants will learn how to conduct a successful records inventory and appraise records in preparation for creating and/or updating records retention schedules as part of your records management plan. We will discuss what a records inventory is, steps for completing the inventory process, and strategies for appraising office records. This session is presented by Lorianne Ouderkirk, Records Analyst.
Records Access I: Public Records Requests
Records Access I: Public Records Requests will consider records classification, records sharing, handling GRAMA requests, and the appeals process. This training is very similar to the online training required for appointed records officers. The certification exam will not be administered during the in-person training. This session is presented by Rosemary Cundiff, Government Records Ombudsman.
Records Access I: Public Records Requests for Law Enforcement Records
Records Access I: Public Records Requests for Law Enforcement Records will dig deeper into access and classification issues with emphasis on common law enforcement records and subpoenas. In addition to records protected by GRAMA, discussion will include common exempt records such as accident records and expunged records. This session is presented by Rosemary Cundiff, Government Records Ombudsman.
Records Access II: Appeals
Records Access II: Appeals will go over the basics of providing access, including handling GRAMA requests and describing the appeals process. Recent changes to GRAMA will be reviewed. This session is presented by Rosemary Cundiff, Government Records Ombudsman.
