PURPOSE To implement a College-wide program to ensure that Langara meets its legislative, financial and legal obligations as a public body to manage its records and information in a systematic and consistent manner. To ensure that all College records are trustworthy, usable over time, retained and disposed of according to approved timetables and managed as a consistent whole, regardless of media or location, when they relate to the same subject or are part of the same business process. To ensure that any College records in paper, microfilm or electronic form scanned or imported into a records and document management system are processed and maintained according to principles and practices that enhance their admissibility as evidence in legal proceedings and reliably support business decisions. To ensure that College employees have the resources, procedures and training they require to effectively and efficiently manage their records. 2. DEFINITIONS Active records: are records in constant use that need to be retained in the office close to users. Archival records: are records used to administer, support or document the delivery of College programs, carry out operations, make decisions or account for College activities, and require indefinite preservation. Document imaging: is a technology used to capture, store, manipulate and display images of paper or microfilmed documents in digital form. Document management: is the combination of business processes and computer software used to capture, organize, store, retrieve, manipulate and control the circulation of scanned paper or microfilmed documents and born digital documents.

2 Page 2 Office of primary responsibility: is the business area that creates or receives and files original, official records relating to its particular function or activity within the College. The business area is responsible for defining and following the retention and disposal schedule established for its records. Official college records: are all records created or received by College employees in the course of their duties on behalf of the College and retained to meet business, legal, financial, legislative and other needs. For the purposes of implementing this policy, the definition of official college records excludes books and other published materials and copyrighted or copyrightable materials. Official college records may be in the form of paper, non-paper-based media such as microfilm, CD-ROM and audio or video tape and electronic media such as , word processing, spreadsheet and presentation documents, digital images of paper or microfilm stored in a records and document management system, databases and web sites. Personal information: means recorded information about an identifiable individual. Personal information includes: home address, home telephone number, race, nationality, origin, colour, political or religious beliefs, age, sex, sexual orientation, marital or family status, and any identifying number or symbol assigned to an individual. It also includes an individual s personal history regarding finances, education, health, criminal records and employment. Personal information also includes images about individuals. Personal information bank: is a collection of personal information that is organized or retrievable by the name of an individual or by an identifying number, symbol or other particular assigned to an individual. Primary record: is the official copy of the record and is generally stored in a secure place in a senior administrative office area. Records and information management: policies and procedures, technologies, and other administrative controls applied to the records and information that employees use to support their business operations and processes, and that are required to protect legal interests and fulfil legislative obligations. Records and information management functions include activities such as implementing filing systems, establishing retention and disposal schedules, protecting vital records and preserving archival records. Records and information management appraisal report: the document that the Records Manager produces in consultation with a business area to describe its records and define each record type s appropriate retention and disposal schedule. Retention and disposal schedules: define specific time periods for keeping records in the office (the active phase), for maintaining records in storage (the semi-active phase), and determining their final disposition (destruction or indefinite archival preservation). Secondary record: is a copy of the primary record and may be stored by departments for convenience for a period of time that meets their current access needs, but no longer.

3 Page 3 Semi-active records: are records no longer used constantly, but are required for reference, legal, audit or other purposes. Semi-active records are transferred to on- or off-site secured storage to free-up limited and expensive office space. Source records: are records in paper form or on microfilm that contain information or data entered into a records and document management system. Trustworthy records: are records that are reliable (they are what they claim to be), complete (created with all the content, contextual information and rules required to carry out their intended business purpose) and authentic (can be trusted as evidence of business transactions and proven not to have been altered in any way). Usable records: are records that can be retrieved, accessed, deciphered and comprehended for as long as their creators and other business areas, such as audit or legal departments, require them. Vital records: are records considered essential to the College s continuing or resuming its operations in the event of a disaster. A record is vital when it would be required to resume or continue College business, supports the College s legal or financial position or is made vital by regulation or statute. 3.
