The Vermont State Archives and Records Administration (VSARA) is charged with administering and implementing a statewide records management program in accordance with professional records and information management practices and principles. The state records management program applies efficient and effective management methods for creation, use, maintenance, retention, destruction, and preservation of records created and received in the course of agency business.
The Records Analysis and Policy Development (RAPD) Unit within VSARA publishes record retention schedules (required by law for the destruction of records or transfer of records into the State Archives) and records management guidelines and standards, including the Vermont Functional Classification System. The RAPD unit also coordinates the Records Officer and Records Liaison Program, sets policies and requirements for using the State Records Center for inactive records storage, and collaborates with the Department of Information and Innovation for managing information in enterprise systems.
