State Agency Records Retention Schedules

A records retention schedule is a document that identifies and describes a state agency’s records and the lengths of time that each type of record (called a “record series”) must be retained.  Texas state agencies are required to submit their retention schedules to TSLAC on a timetable established by administrative rule. The rules governing retention scheduling are published as State Agency Bulletin 3.  If a record series does not appear on a certified records retention schedule, it may not be destroyed without obtaining special permission of TSLAC’s executive director.

For more information about the recertification process, see State Agency Records Retention Schedule Recertification.

Certified Texas state agency records retention schedules, and correspondence associated with the recertification process, are published below in PDF format.  Click on the links below to access an agency's retention schedule.

Approval Date is the date the current records retention schedule was approved.  Date Amended is the date of the most recently approved amendment (if any).
