The Records Management Program at Central Washington University provides information for the identification, management, and preservation of active, inactive, and archival records. The program operates under Public Records Law, RCW 40.14 (Preservation and Destruction of Public Records) and RCW 40.10 (Protection of Essential Records).

University records by statutory definition are public property and must be maintained, transferred, and destroyed according to records retention schedules approved by the State Records Committee.

Records pertaining to ongoing or pending audits, litigation holds, or judicial or public disclosure proceedings must not be destroyed until the issue is resolved.

Please contact the Forms & Records Analyst at 963-2308 If you would like more information or need help identifying your records.
