Retention and Disposal Schedules

A Retention and Disposal Schedule is a continuing disposal authority for an organization's core-business / agency-specific records.

Each State Government organization is required to review their Schedule as part of the 5 year review of the organization's Recordkeeping Plan. 

The 'Evaluation of the R&D' section of the RKP Review Report is to describe whether or not:

  • The organization’s functions or processes have changed significantly;
  • New categories of records have been identified or created; or
  • Existing disposal decisions have been re-considered.

The SRO will advise the organization on further actions, if any, on receipt of the RKP Review Report.

For queries about reviews, revisions, and development of R&Ds please contact the SRO via email at
