What University General Record Schedules are Available?
Unique Record Schedules: Whenever possible the General Record Schedules(GRS) are to be used. But on occasion, a department or unit creates records which are unique for that department and require a separate or unique record schedule. Unique record schedules set retention policies for records types that are specific to a department or unit. These schedules are kept by the department and are located to the right under Unique Record Schedules.
General Record Retention Schedules (GRS) are approved for UW-Madison campus-wide use. General record schedules codify retention policies for record types which are common to all offices across the organization. Rather than making each office secure its own specific retention schedule (as otherwise required by State Statute), the University Records Officer develops campus-wide general record retention schedules that set minimum retention policy for certain types of records.
