Guidelines, Laws, and Policies

The links on this page are provided for the reference of office managers and other UWM employees interested in State- and University-wide records policy. In general, these links are provided in ascending order of requirement, with the records management guidelines serving mainly as "best practices" suggestions and the State of Wisconsin statutes and federal statutes being mandatory for all employees. However, following the laws and guidelines on this page helps improve the efficacy of the records management process and protects university offices from legal ramifications.
