Retention Policy
 
It is the policy of the TSRT to comply with state and federal law regarding the retention of records and documents.  The retention of those records that are not governed by State or Federal law should be retained for as long as there is an anticipated business need for such documents.  The TSRT Board Chair will be responsible of all record retention matters.
 
Listed below is the "Recommended Retention Periods for TSRT Records".  This should be used as a reference in detemining the recommended retention periods for various documents.  Destruction of records in a time frame shorter than the recommended guidelines should first be cleared by the TSRT Board Chair or legal counsel of the ASRT.  Special consideration should be given to all records and policies monitored by the board.  All documents of a confidential or proprietary nature should be destroyed by the shredding method.
