Recorded Information Management Program, Public Archives and Records Office

Recorded Information Management (RIM) is the systematic control of all recorded information regardless of media from creation or receipt to final disposition. Effective records management:

  • supports decision making;
  • reduces costs;
  • meets business, legal, and accountability requirements; and
  • ensures appropriate record disposition.
