Records Management

Records Management consists of two parts, the Georgia Open Records Act (O.C.G.A. 50-18-70 et seq) and the Georgia Records Act (O.C.G.A. 50-18-90 et seq). The Georgia Open Records Act requires that public records be open and available for review by any member of the public. The Georgia Records Act covers records management that includes records retention for all state agencies.
