Introduction

The Texas State Records Retention Schedule (RRS) is adopted as an administrative rule of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission and supersedes the schedule of January 1, 1998.

This retention schedule indicates the minimum length of time listed records series must be retained by a state agency before destruction or archival preservation. The RRS does not take the place of an agency's retention schedule, but is to be used as a guide by the agency in creating and updating its schedule. Records series listed on the RRS are those which are commonly found in most state agencies. The retention periods given in the RRS are required minimums. The commission also recommends them as appropriate maximum retention periods.

In addition to the common records listed in the RRS, each agency has unique records series that must be included in its retention schedule. Each agency must submit a complete records retention schedule, entered on Form SLR 105, or an approved facsimile, to the State and Local Records Management Division of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission (Government Code, §441.185).

Some records in this schedule must be transferred to the Archives and Information Services Division of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission for archival preservation after they are no longer needed in the agency; other records in this schedule are subject to archival review for historical value by staff of the same division before disposal.

If a federal or state statute or regulation specifies a longer retention period for any records series received, created, or maintained by an agency, the statute or regulation overrides this schedule.

Some records in this schedule must be transferred to the Archives and Information Services Division of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission for archival preservation after they are no longer needed in the agency; other records in this schedule are subject to archival review for historical value by staff of the same division before disposal.

If a federal or state statute or regulation specifies a longer retention period for any records series received, created, or maintained by an agency, the statute or regulation overrides this schedule.

Summary of Important Points

  • The RRS does not take the place of an agency records retention schedule.
  • The RRS is to be used as an authoritative guide in creating and updating an agency records retention schedule.
  • Retention periods listed in the RRS are required minimums. Some agencies may need to keep some of the records listed for longer periods; agency legal staff should be consulted.
  • Federal or state statutes or regulations requiring longer retention periods override retention periods in the RRS.
  • For individual records series, there may be requirements in law or regulation for submitting copies of records to other state agencies. Each agency should determine any requirements for filing copies that may apply to the agency's specific records series.
  • Each agency must submit a complete records retention schedule to the State and Local Records Management Division of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.
  • For assistance in evaluating records having possible historical value, contact the Archives and Information Services Division of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission at

Explanation of Fields

Records Series Item Number - Records series item numbers are assigned by the State and Local Records Management Division of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.

Records Series Title - The most general titles possible have been chosen. Explanations are provided for those titles which are not self-explanatory.

Vital Records - Vital records are those that are essential to resume business or continue an organization, to recreate an agency's financial or legal position, or to preserve the rights of employees and citizens. Records series commonly regarded as vital have been so designated. These designations are not made mandatory by this schedule. The records management officer in each agency is responsible for determining which records series of the agency are vital. Records series unique to the agency may be vital and some records series designated as vital in this schedule may not be so in the agency, depending on the nature of its internal recordkeeping systems.

Archival - Those records series that must be transferred, or evaluated, for archival preservation.

Total Retention - Retention is expressed in years unless otherwise noted.

Comments - This column contains citations to applicable federal or state laws or regulations or other information regarding records retention requirements.

Explanation of Codes

Archival Codes

A - The records must be transferred to the Archives and Information Services Division of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.

R - The Archives and Information Services Division must be contacted for an archival review of the records before disposition. Those records determined to be archival must be transferred to the Archives and Information Services Division for long-term preservation.

Special Note: Staff of the Archives and Information Services Division conduct archival appraisals on a series by series basis. As a result of these appraisals, one or more records series of an agency bearing the Archival Code R may be found to lack sufficient archival value to merit transfer to the Archives and Information Services Division. In such instances, the agency will be instructed to use a special Archival Code E for the record series.

Retention Codes: All numbers used with retention periods are expressed in years unless otherwise indicated.

AC - After Closed (or terminated, completed, expired, or settled): The record is related to a function or activity with a finite closure date.

AV - As Long as Administratively Valuable: The immediate purpose for which the record was created has been fulfilled and any subsequent need for the record to conduct the operations of the agency, if any, has been satisfied. This retention period, new to this schedule, replaces PS (Purpose Served), used in earlier editions of this schedule.

CE - Calendar Year End: December 31.

FE - Fiscal Year End: August 31.

LA - Life of Asset: The record is retained until the disposal of the asset.

PM - Permanent: A record that possesses enduring legal, fiscal, or administrative value and must be preserved permanently by the agency.

US - Until Superseded: The record is replaced by an updated version. If a record subject to this retention period is discontinued or is no longer required by law, the date of supersession is the date the decision to discontinue the record is made or the law takes effect. If the record relates to an employee, the date of supersession is the date of termination or the last date the record is needed with reference to the employee, as applicable. For example, an authorization for direct deposit (see Records Series Item Number 3.2.008) would be superseded on the date the last deposit is made under the authorization.

Explanation of Terms

CFR - Code of Federal Regulations. Regulations of federal agencies adopted under authority of laws enacted by the U. S. Congress.

Record Copy - The document which is kept on file as an original or official record for the total retention period. Distinct from a "working" or "convenience" copy, which is a duplicate used for reference purposes.
Caution: Care must be taken by records management officers in determining if duplicate records are indeed convenience copies or if two or more copies of the same document must be considered record copies. It is very possible for the same document to be present in two or more units of a state agency and be the record copy in each unit if it serves a different funtion in each of those units.

Records Series - A group of identical or related records with the same function and the same retention period that is evaluated as a unit for retention scheduling purposes.

Retention Period - The amount of time a records series must be retained before destruction or archival preservation.

State Publication - Information in any format that is produced by the authority of or at the total or partial expense of a state agency or is required to be distributed under law by the agency, and is publicly distributed. The term does not include information the distribution of which is solely limited to contractors with or grantees of the agency, staff persons within the agency or within other government agencies, or members of the public under a request made under the open records law, Government Code, Chapter 552. The term includes but is not limited to: a publication distributed in print, on microform, as audiovisual material, as interactive media or on electronic external storage device; an on-line publication which is an index to other on-line publications, one or more text, graphic, or other digital files, or a user interface to a computer database.

TAC - Texas Administrative Code. Regulations of state agencies adopted under authority of laws enacted by the Texas Legislature.

Amendment Notice

"•" A bullet preceding the Records Series Item Number denotes the addition of a new records series or a revision to a records series as it appeared in the January 1998 edition of the Texas State Records Retention Schedule , issued as an administrative rule of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission. The revisions noted by a bullet are:

  • Additions of new records series.
  • Deletions of records series and/or their inclusion in another records series in the schedule.
  • Changes to records series descriptions or titles.
  • Changes to retention periods.
  • Changes to the archival status of a records series.
  • Changes to legal citations.
  • Substantive changes to comments about the records series.

Occasionally, a records series will be deleted from this schedule because it has been determined that it is not a record maintained in most agencies, but it may remain a specialized record in some agencies.

Missing numbers in the Records Series Item Number sequence indicate that in prior editions of this schedule a records series was eliminated, combined with another records series, or was re-numbered.
