Following the Queen's University Records Management Policy, approved by the Principal in 2003, a university-wide Records Management Program has been established by Records Management staff from the University Archives. The program provides systematic and standardized controls for the management of all university records throughout their lifecycle, as well as offers substantial cost efficiencies. The program facilitates compliance with Ontario Freedom of Information, Protection of Privacy (FIPPA) legislation, and also affords other risk management advantages.
Under the governance of the University Records Committee, the records management team has created the Directory of University Records, which is a classification scheme for University Records. Records retention schedules are being developed based on this directory. We also develop procedures and guidelines, and design forms for managing University Records.
