New General Schedule for Your Input

Rebekkah Shaw General Retention Schedules, Records Management 4 Comments

We would like to propose the following general schedule to the State Records Committee at their next meeting on April 13th. This will be listed in the state general schedule, but may be used by any governmental entity to schedule their records. If you have any changes you would like to see to this general schedule, please notify Rebekkah Shaw at rshaw@utah.gov or 801-531-3851.

TITLE: INVESTIGATION RECORDS (1-86)

DESCRIPTION: These records contain information necessary to undertake a complete investigation and are used to identify patterns of behavior, investigate claims, conduct internal investigations, and for other investigative purposes. Records may relate to the initiation, investigation, and disposition of cases, but do not include investigations of employees, criminal activities , or worker’s compensation, which have separate retention schedule.

RETENTION: 7 years after case is closed and then destroy.

  1. Rebekkah, This is one is very broad so I am not sure what records are intended to be included in this. What “case”? It says “undertake a complete* investigation”,* my question is investigation of what?

      Paula,
      This schedule
      This schedule can be used for internal investigations. This could include investigations as a result of audit findings or claims, investigations following customer comments/concerns, and investigations related to safety oversight.

  2. Am I understanding correctly that this does not pertain to police investigations, but more employee investigations?

      Lorrie,
      This does not apply to criminal investigations or employee discipline. However, this schedule can be used for internal investigations. This could include investigations as a result of audit findings or claims, investigations following customer comments/concerns, and investigations related to safety oversight.

      I hope this helps.
