STATE RECORDS CENTER
Online Records Request Form
Targeted Assistance Program
The State Records Center provides low-cost, secure storage for records that must be maintained for audit, fiscal, legal, or administrative needs, but are no longer used frequently enough to justify storing the records on-site, which is generally more expensive. For records stored in the State Records Center, both legal control and control of access to the records are retained by the agency until the records are either transferred to the State Archives or destroyed.
Records must have an approved disposition order or record schedule to be stored in the State Records Center. In addition, agencies wishing to transfer records for the first time to the State Records Center must go through the Targeted Assistance Program (TAP) to establish record retention requirements. Series that have not been used for transfers since July 2008 and/or do not have an approved disposition order or record schedule have been discontinued. Agencies wishing to reactivate these series must also go through TAP.
