Is this blog for me?

This blog is open to all readers, but is written primarily for records management personnel in 150+ state agencies and 10,000+ local governments in the State of Texas.

A local government is defined as “a county, including all district and precinct offices of a county, municipality, public school district, appraisal district, or any other special-purpose district or authority.”

A state agency is defined as “any department, commission, board, office, or other agency in the executive, legislative, or judicial branch of state government created by the constitution or a statute of this state, including an eleemosynary institution; the Texas Municipal Retirement System and the Texas County and District Retirement System; and any public nonprofit corporation created by the legislature whose responsibilities and authority are not limited to a geographical area less than that of the state.”

If you’re still unsure, please don’t hesitate to contact us at (512) 463-7610.
