Not included in the schedule
If a document you have isn’t on the retention schedule it means there is probably no legal need or general business continuity need for you to keep it. Schedules focus on what your department, section, centre, school or office needs to keep. They don’t include things you as an individual might feel useful to keep. If something is for your own use, because it’s part of something you’re currently working on, or something that you work on termly or annually and need a reminder of how things went the last time, then that’s fine.
If you think something in your office, department, school or section is a core document and needed for legal or business continuity reason, and it isn’t on the schedule check to see whether another part of the University holds it. There is a list of items kept elsewhere, and the Academic Section retention schedule might also be useful. If you still can’t find the item listed then please speak to the Information Manager who will be able to advise and update the schedule if necessary.
