Frequently Asked Questions
Where should I file the records of a new project?The records of a new project should be filed in new folder(s) beneath level 1-3 headings that describe the function and activities of the project. Ask yourself “what function or activity does the project fulfil?”
E.g. A project to review the governance structure of the University should be filed on a folder under H/1/2, “Governance & Management-Governance Structure-Governance Structure Development”. A project to review the financial administration of PP should be filed on a folder under R/2 ‘Finance-Finance [PP]’.
If you think that you need new level 1-3 headings, or if you need new folders, contact the Central Records Registry to discuss the filing requirements of your new project.
