Official Record Schedules

Retention schedules govern how records and information are organized and managed. UFV uses schedules to ensure records are kept for as long as required, identify records of enduring value for preservation, and ensure that others are routinely destroyed when they are no longer needed.

Transitory Records Schedule

Transitory records are records of temporary usefulness that are needed only for a limited period of time in order to complete a routine action or prepare a final record.

Administrative and Operational Records Schedule

Administrative records that support the “housekeeping” functions common to all university departments and units. Operational records that support the unique mandates and operations of the departments and units within the University. Note that record retention schedules are not specific to a singular unit or department. Schedules are intended to be universal to all records at UFV. 

Instant Messaging System Records Schedule

Instant messaging as part of any collaboration software, such as MSTeams, used for transitory and routine communication only.
