• All schedules proposing the length of time each records series warrants retention for administrative, legal or fiscal purposes
• The list of public records in the agency’s custody that are not needed in the transaction of current business and that are not considered to have sufficient administrative, legal or fiscal value to warrant their inclusion in established disposal schedules.
