The Department of Business Services oversees centralized Records Retention operations for the University. Chapter 441, Texas Government Code, established the State and Local Records Management Division and requires that each state agency develop and maintain an active, continuing program for the economical and efficient management of the records of the agency or institution. The official records retention schedule of UHV is published by the University of Houston and is certified by the Texas State Library and Archive Commission, State and Local Records Management Division. Records are classified, stored and retained in accordance with the Records Retention schedule. Questions concerning records retention should be directed to Susie Motal, X-4826.
