3 FUTURE PRACTICE A Move Towards Flexible Scheduling

4 Government of Alberta Information Management Framework and Information Management Strategic Plan Cross-government records classification and retention and disposition schedules for common functions Replacement of Administrative Records Disposition Authority (ARDA)

5 Alberta Education Working with established standards and guidelines to move towards a more functional approach to information organization Retention and disposition with a focus on flexible scheduling

6 Flexible Scheduling – What? Appraisal criteria to establish retention periods to multiple similar groups of information across an organization Streamlining retention schedules into limited categories or buckets Reduces duplication between department and business units

7 Flexible Scheduling – Why? Reduces the number of record series into grouped buckets Reduces the number of repeating retention categories from hundreds of records series to only those that relate to functions and processes Requires less effort inventorying and scheduling More efficient, cost effective, and easier for users to work with More transparency for users Drop-down menus which allows quick access and meaningful user classification

8 Flexible Scheduling – How? Decomposition of business functions and activities Business, legal, and regulatory requirements are mapped to records series Goal is the synthesis of records series based on similar business purposes, retention requirements, and legal obligations
