More State General Retention Schedule Updates

Rebekkah Shaw General Retention Schedules, Records Management

Listed here are five state financial retention schedules to be overwritten by the new financial schedule approved December 8th by the State Records Committee. If a retention schedule is overwritten by an updated schedule, it will be hyperlinked to the new schedule on our website.

The State Auditor’s Office also reviewed the schedule before it was seen by the State Records Committee. We hope this schedule will make the retention of many financial records simpler to manage.

Please update your records so the updated retention will be followed from this point going forward. Below is the updated schedule, then the schedules being removed from the  general retention schedule. If you have any questions, please call us at 801-531-3863.
