Records Management at TAMIU
As a part of The Texas A&M University System, Texas A&M International University is committed to maintaining an active and continuing state records management program in compliance with federal and state law. The A&M System records management program is coordinated by the System Records Management Officer, working with the designated Records Officers for each A&M System Member. Records management is the application of management techniques to the creation, use, maintenance, retention, ensuring access to public information, and reducing costs for state records. The term includes:
- the development of records retention schedules;
- management of filing and information retrieval systems in any media;
- adequate protection of state records that are vital, archival, or confidential according to accepted archival and records management practices;
- economical and space-effective storage of inactive records;
- control over the creation and distribution of forms, reports, and correspondence; and
- maintenance of public information in a manner to facilitate access by the public.
At Texas A&M International University, the Records Officer is Steve Harmon in the Office of Public Relations, Marketing and Information Services, 956.326.2180. Call to schedule personal or group training. Twice a year, in Fall and Spring Semesters, designated University personnel are required to complete a TAMIU Records Retention Compliance Form to affirm their adherence to our records management program.
Records Management is governed by System Regulation 61.99.01, Retention of State Records.
