County Suggested Records Retention Schedules

These retention schedules were compiled by the Ohio County Archivists and Records Managers Association (CARMA) and the State Archives to update the County Records Manual.  The drafts follow retention periods required by statute or determined by best practice.   Your records commission may use and adapt the schedules as appropriate.  Department schedules are designed to be used in conjunction with the general records retention schedule.
