Hi Amanda,

In addition to business sector considerations that you can research at both the federal and state level codes, you might want to refer to the Uniform Commercial Code before beginning to interview your vested players at the higher levels so you have some background information and can speak their language.  Here is a link:

Good luck.

Subject: [RM] Records Retention Schedule Development


I am new to the field of RIM in that this is the first position that I have held--I am a Records Administrator. I just started with a corporation that one year ago created a RRS for the first time. Unfortunately, no records series has a reference to which source was used to determine retention/destruction. They just asked departments what they thought it should be.
