Warning

If your department or office receives a notice of a Records Preservation/Hold Order you must comply with the instructions from General Counsel’s office. A Records Preservation/Hold Order is an internal procedure to ensure that certain information is preserved which may be needed for reasonably anticipated or actual government investigation, audit, or litigation. A Records Preservation/Hold Order temporarily sets aside the retention period stated in the Records Retention and Disposition Schedule, and suspends destruction for the affected records until the Records Preservation/Hold Order is released.
