The University adheres to The Texas Government Code, Chapter 441, which establishes the responsibilities of state agencies, the State and Local Records Management Division, and the State Archives in the managing of the state's records. The University's policy is in the form of a Records Retention Schedule (RRS)  which has been approved by the University of Texas System, the Texas State Auditor's Office and the Texas State Library.

Each department has its own section within the University's RRS. Each section identifies the records held by a specific department and the length of time which a department must retain those records. Authority to dispose of records must also be requested and granted through the Office of Accounting.

If you have any questions or need a copy of the University's RRS, please contact the Office of Accounting.
