How long must a state or local government agency keep its records?

Records retention schedules govern how long an agency must keep its records; the Indiana Commission on Public Records helps both state government agencies and county/local government agencies develop their records retention schedules.

A General Retention Schedule for all state administrative branch agencies describes basic record types created by many offices; records unique to individual agencies are available in the Retention Schedule Database for state agencies.

Retention schedules for county and local agencies are available in PDF format.

For more information on government records retention, contact the Records Management Division: rmd@icpr.in.gov / (317-232-3380)
