Records management


Records management is the systematic control of an organisation's records, throughout their life cycle, in order to meet operational business needs, statutory and fiscal requirements, and community expectations.

Effective management of corporate information allows fast, accurate and reliable access to records, ensuring the timely destruction of redundant information and the identification and protection of vital and historically important records.

The Public Records (Scotland) Act 2011 places an obligation on named public authorities, of which the Scottish Legal Aid Board is one, to prepare and implement a records management plan which sets out proper arrangements for the management of their records.
