As a part of The Texas A&M University System (System), Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) is committed to maintaining a records management program in compliance with federal and state law. Records Management is governed by System Regulation 61.99.01, Retention of State Records . The records management program is coordinated by the System Records Management Officer, working in conjunction with the designated Records Officers for each System Member. Records management is the application of management techniques to state records for their creation, use, maintenance, retention, access, and cost reduction. Records management entails:

  • 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.
