The archivist may prepare and approve general records schedules governing the disposition of record types which are common to several or all agencies. Such schedules shall be based upon analysis of the administrative, legal, fiscal, audit, historical, and other values of each record type, consistent with current standards of records management and archival practice. Before approval of a general records schedule, the archivist shall forward copies of the proposed schedule to the attorney general, treasurer, and territorial auditor for their review and comments based, respectively, on the legal, fiscal, and audit values of the record types included on it. Any comments shall be returned to the archivist within 20 days. The archivist, after review of comments received and any appropriate modifications, shall prepare and approve a general records schedule, certifying that the records recommended for disposal will not have sufficient administrative, legal, fiscal, audit, historical, or other value to warrant retention beyond the expiration of their specified periods. Copies of general records schedules shall be made available to agencies.History: Rule 14-87, eff 4 Aug 87.
