Where should I keep records?

For most records held electronically they should be stored within the appropriate site and folder in Alfresco and, where this has been agreed as the process, declared as a record at the appropriate time.

Some non-standard record types may be held elsewhere – for example, in a line of business system or on network folders

Paper records may be stored off-site when no longer required for current business.
