General Administration


This page addresses general administrative management records. It includes two chapters from the APHIS Records Management Handbook and three General Records Schedules (GRS).

The APHIS schedules have been updated to reference the appropriate GRS where ever possible. The dispositions contained in the GRS are mandatory and take precedence over APHIS dispositions.

Retentions for "All other offices" is no longer listed. All non-record copies are treated as informational unless separately scheduled. Informational copies can be destroyed when no longer needed, but cannot be retained beyond the retention period for the recordkeeping copies.
