New Webinar: Local Government Compliance 101

Compliance Blue Marker

Is your local government in compliance? Are you unsure of what it actually means to be in compliance? Did you know that if a government office is out of compliance then no records may be destroyed until compliance is met?

The process of getting into and staying in compliance is fairly easy, so don’t worry!  In this webinar, we’ll guide you through the steps to get into compliance quickly so that your office can adhere to the laws and manage records effectively.

There are three basic components to meeting the requirements in the Local Government Records Act:

  • Have a policy approved by the governing body or elected official on file with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC).
  • Designate a Records Management Officer (RMO) within the approved policy and provide contact information.
  • Make a retention decision, such as adopting the TSLAC retention schedules, creating a custom retention schedule, or keeping all records permanently.

We will not be able to check compliance status during the webinar, so if you want to get squared away before or after the course, then please contact your government information analyst or email slrminfo@tsl.texas.gov.
