In collaboration with department personnel, RIM will visit in-office and on-site storage locations to:
- Review records to determination retention requirements.
- Identify records that are eligible for destruction.
- Complete the certificate of records destruction (RM3).
Before contacting RIM, gather as much information as possible on the records, such as the type of records (ex: financial, research, etc.) and the volume (number of boxes or filing cabinets).
Departments are responsible for contacting UVA Recycling and disposing of records identified by RIM as eligible for destruction.
