A records management system provides evidence of transactions and activities and helps with any decision making we carry out as a council. Under the Public Records (Scotland) Act 2011, we have created a records management plan.

Records Management Plan

Effective records management makes sure that:

  • All information we receive or create is stored correctly.
  • All information is accessible.
  • All information is destroyed or saved as set out in our retention and disposal schedule.
  • Our system meets current and future needs and is adaptable.
  • We have correct technical, organisational and human resources to make the points above possible.

The Records Management and Preservation of Archives Policy was agreed January 2014.
