Record Retention Statement

General Record Retention Guidelines

Most records should be retained for three (3) years or until audited, whichever is longer.* The Office of Legislative Audits most recent fiscal compliance audit of UMB covered the period July 1, 2015 - June 30, 2018. The final audit report was issued July 10, 2019. 

*Keep in mind that other federal or state regulations that may dictate longer retention periods. Additionally, for records that are grant-/contract-related, the grant/contract documents may dictate the record retention requirements. See the Sponsored Programs Administration website for further record retention guidance http://www.umaryland.edu/spa/award-management/record-retention/.
