Official Records

An official record is the complete (final) and most authoritative record that is to be maintained for business or legal reasons. Official records can be considered the original and final document. If that document is maintained by your department then you have an official record. Unofficial records can be drafts or duplicates of official records or documents that were not created or received as part of doing business.
If you have any questions about whether or not your department has official records please contact the Records Management Department before destroying them.
