Records Retention, Timing Standards and Yearly Activities

Records Retention

CFAES follows the University's records retention schedule.

Sometimes, however, the language CFAES uses may differ from the University's. Use the Records Retention Guidelines to navigate through records retention questions. 

Public Records Requests: Each unit that serves the public should have a posted copy of the Public Records Policy in your office. Please post this somewhere where your employees can see it such as a breakroom or work room. If you don’t have a common space please ensure each employee gets a copy personally. 

Timing Standards

In general most transactions are processed within six business days of receiving the request in the Service Center. However, some items require more time and others less depending on its priority. See the Timing Standards for the Columbus Business Office for specific timing questions.
