10 Classification Scheme Components
a logical and systematic arrangement of records into subject groups, categories or classes based on their natural relationships. The classifications use letters or numbers for identification. Components File Code File Title Description/Scope Notes OPR Retention Period Assigning a file number is simply looking up the system and choosing the number. The file code represents a category – numbers were chosen arbitrarily but form a pattern of functionality. File Codes are organized by function not necessarily by department If a code cannot be found, contact the Records Management Liaison Aspects InfoTech Solutions Inc

11 Retention and Disposition
Saves Money Space Equipment Costs Legal requirements

12 Retention Schedules Identifying potential changes to Retention Periods
the period of time (stated in the retention schedule) that records must be kept before they may be destroyed or transferred to a permanent means of preservation. The retention period is divided into an active phase, semi-active phase, and final disposition. Codes - CY+1y nil DES A - Active SA – Semi-Active FD – Final Disposition CY - Current Year FY - Fiscal Year y – year SO – Superceded or obsolete DES – Destroy SR – Subject to Review P – Permanent Identifying potential changes to Retention Periods Changes to Retention Periods may happen if legislation that dictates how long a record is kept changes.
