Managing Public Records & Information

The State of Florida defines public records through record retention schedules which describe a record or series of records and assigns a retention period [Chapter 1B-24, F.A.C.] State law also outlines the requirements for the disposal of public records and assigns these responsibilities to a designated Records Management Liaison Officer (RMLO.) The University Records Manager fulfils this requirement and liaises with the Division of Library and Information Services.

Please remember that any personal information or data retained on a University device or in your University email account may be subject to discovery during a public records request or through legal discovery. You should only be using University devices and accounts to conduct official business – for more on this please see UFIT’s Acceptable Use Policy.
