In particular this position will:

  • Coordinate special projects for units on campus focusing on digital records governance at the departmental level. Taken to full completion, these projects may culminate in the digital transfer of semi-active records to centrally managed electronic storage.
  • Respond to requests from units and departments seeking advice and recordkeeping assistance in managing their operational records.
  • Work in alignment with the general approach to RM projects at the Okanagan Campus.
  • Lead digital readiness governance initiatives supporting the Faculties.

  • Provide RM training and provide records-related information to employees across campus; prepare manuals and/or other web-based educational resources as appropriate.
  • Promote, explain, and disseminate records retention schedules to University recordkeeping units.
  • Identify vital records and participate in the development of guidelines for their protection in order to ensure the information necessary to re-establish or continue the operation of the University in the event of a disaster.
  • Participate in relevant committees as needed.
  • Participate in the reporting of the impact of the RM program on campus.
