UHV Social Networks:
In response to an open records request, I am in the process of reviewing documentation in my office files, and I have discovered some relevant documents that should have already been destroyed. May I go ahead and destroy these records?
No. If the information existed at the time of the request, it must be reviewed. Reminder: destruction of records is always halted in cases of a pending audit, litigation, open records request, or administrative review. For more information, contact the Records Management Administrator at (361) 570-4826.
