Vermont Functional Classification System (VCLAS)
The Vermont Functional Classification System (VCLAS) is a tool for inventorying, appraising and scheduling government records and information. VCLAS provides a mechanism for uniformly and systematically defining, describing and managing public records within the State of Vermont.
Every undertaking of state and local government and supporting documentation can be described using functional classification. Functional classification is a faceted classification system that breaks down business functions and their supporting documentation into basic concepts (facets). VCLAS consists of three core facets: domains (areas of accountability); activities; and record types. Additional facets within the classification system include public agencies; people; and statutes, rules and regulations. Additional facets may be added to support enterprise and web content management.
