Records Management Handbook
State agency record schedules are developed by the Vermont State Archives and Records Administration (VSARA) and the agency through the Targeted Assistance Program.
These are agency-specific record schedules that satisfy the requirements of 1 V.S.A. § 317a and, where mandated, 3 V.S.A. § 218. They are subject to annual certification and may be amended by mutual consent at any time. If not otherwise listed, all other agency records are addressed by general record schedules. If your agency has not received a record schedule, all disposition orders issued prior to 2008 remain in effect for agency records.

Public agencies are responsible for developing their own internal policies and procedures to assure that the requirements outlined in agency and general record schedules are being applied across the agency. Records listed on the record schedule that need to be retained until OBSOLETE must be supported by an internal policy that clearly states a specific retention requirement that best meets the agency or department's administrative needs.
Please note that transferring records to the State Records Center or State Archives requires a transfer agreement (VSARA-12) from the Vermont State Archives and Records Administration and additional documentation.
