Records Management Framework

The Records Management Framework has been established to:

  • Raise the profile and understanding of effective records management throughout the University and to ensure that good practice is adopted;
  • Ensure University-wide compliance with key pieces of legislation, such as the Data Protection Act 1998 and the Freedom of Information Act 2000; and
  • Ensure the University’s records management policies are effectively implemented and followed in all parts of the University.

The framework consists of a network of Records Officers in schools and departments who are responsible for informing staff in their areas about key polices, and promoting good records management practice. It is intended to be 2-way flow for information about records management issues.
