Records Transfer List Instructions

 

Download the new Transfer List form


The Records Transfer List Form is required any time records are being transmitted to the City Records Center for purposes indicated on the Records Retention Schedule. Each Department’s Records Coordinator should review the Transfer List for accuracy and completeness prior to transfer. The transfer list may be brought with the records or emailed to City Records, but it must be received no later than receipt of the records themselves.

All records to be sent down for storage in City Records must have an associated, non-expired records retention schedule. If your office has records that do not appear to belong to any schedule, please contact City Records staff for assistance and/or scheduling help. Where possible, please send records down in official CRC boxes with completed box labels.
