Like, OMG, how long is this title – General Retention and Disposal Schedule for Administrative Records?
As part of the review of the General Retention and Disposal Schedule for Administrative Records (otherwise known as the GRDS for short – like that’s clear!), we thought we would also throw the title into the mix. We would love to change the name of the schedule to reflect the fact that it now covers not just administrative records but also records which are commonly created across multiple agencies.
This is where we need your help.
When you mention the GRDS to a non-records person, do you see their eyes glaze over? Do they even know what you are talking about? We are looking for a title that reflects what the schedule is and which is also clear to a non-records person. We would love to hear your ideas!
Some of the ideas we have so far are:
- General Retention and Disposal Schedule
- General Schedule.
Unfortunately, Boaty McBoatface has been taken and Schedule McScheduleface will not be considered.
Tell us what your title suggestions are in the comments box below, or, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please provide any suggestions by COB Friday 20th May 2016. NOW CLOSED. Thanks for all your suggestions.
P.S. – We are still working on addressing the GRDS consultation feedback and we are looking to release the GRDS & GRDS Lite later this year.
