E C O R D S T E R R I T O R YR4 March 2002 How long do we have to keep Joe Bloggs personal fi le? Check the Disposal Schedule for Human Resource Management Records which was re-issued on 12 December 2001. The Schedule outlines policy and procedures for the retention and disposal of Human Resource Management records in Northern Territory government agencies. This revised version includes a range of additional record classes and some existing record classes have been reassessed for their continuing value. The functional structure of the Schedule is based on the business classifi cation scheme of the NT Government Corporate Thesaurus and covers the following functions: Compensation Establishment Occupational Health & Safety Personnel Staff Development In the not- too-distant future, we hope to combine this schedule with the Disposal Schedule for Financial Management Records and the Disposal Schedule for Administrative Records to form a single Disposal Schedule for Corporate Records of the Northern Territory Government. The Schedule can be accessed on the NTAS internet/intranet site.
