The records section serves the state and local governmental agencies operating in Louisiana with the records related needs. This section is comprised of three parts:
Provides training, assists in the development of agency records retention schedules, processes agency disposal requests, and provides advice to agencies regarding records management related issues through rules, publications, policies and meetings. The Records Management section also provides records-related assistance and information to state and local agencies following disasters.
State Records Center
Provides state agencies a way to save money by using this off-site storage for semi-active records. Records stored in the State Records Center still belong to the agency storing the records and they control who has access to their records. Services include pulling requested records when needed, the notification of records that have met their retention schedules and are eligible for disposal, and the disposal of agency records after approval has been given by the agency.
Provides micrographic services for state and local agencies including prepping and filming materials, processing and duplicating film generated and quality review and archival storage of original negative film. Once the materials have been properly filmed, the originals can either be returned to the agency or disposed of in a confidential manner.
