Records Management Interagency Coordinating Council (RMICC)
The Records Management Interagency Coordinating Council (RMICC) plays a significant role in the management of state government records. The council reviews the activities of member agencies, studies other records management issues and makes biennial reports to the Governor and Legislature. It also adopts policies (which are in turn adopted as rules by each member agency) that coordinate the members' records management activities and make other improvements to state records management.
