Originally, in 1984, and 5,000 employees, Records Management reported to the
Administration Office with a Records Manager and a whole team of Microfilm
technicians and one Records Analyst.

In 1987, with 8,000 employees, they also hired a new controller who transferred
Records Management out of Administration and into Facilities Management,
eliminated the manager & technicians, outsourced microfilming, and retained the
analyst and one clerical position.

Since 1987: Report to Manager of Administration & Finance who reports to the
Facilities Administration Director, who reports to the VP of Facilities
Management, who reports to the VP of Administration, who reports to the

In a few months we will again report to: the Controller, a new employee, who
reports to the VP of Administration, who reports to the President.

I have been asked a question regarding records management practices in =
large organizations and thought I would ask this illustrious list to get =
the most accurate data.   The question posed is - how is records =
management done at a large public company - over 20,000 employees?   Is =
there a dedicated records management staff with director and support =
staff?   If so, where does this fall in the organization chart - under =
legal, administration or IT?    I know the answers to both questions =
will vary, but I am just trying to get a sense of how some companies are =
handling this today.

Thanks for your input.  =20
