The Central Records Department’s primary purpose is to provide the mechanism by which the Tribal Secretary may fulfill the basic legal requirements on record retention established by the Tribal Constitution, Tribal Government and also by Federal laws and regulations. The Department’s main function is the storage and retrieval of all Tribal Records. Storage involves the set-up of a filing system that can provide the quick retrieval of a document when it is needed by the Administration, Council, Programs, or individuals. Although many records pertaining to individual Tribal programs and operations will be retained initially by the Central Records Department, most program documents shall be received and kept by the individual departments and programs. When these documents are no longer actively used in daily program administration, each program director shall review their files and transfer these records to the Central Records Department for storage and disposition. The Disposition of Tribal Records may include filing, inactive storage. Microfilming, retention or the destruction of such records are no longer needed.
