Storage story overlooks records retention

"Spring cleaning for storage clutter" fails to mention a very important method for reducing storage costs: record retention. Government agencies need to know how long they are required to retain data and when they are authorized to destroy it, so they do not waste valuable resources retaining data they don't need. Reality is that very few agencies communicate with their information technology staff about record retention requirements, and even fewer agency IT professionals ask their customers what these requirements are. It is very likely that they are either destroying data too quickly or retaining it too long if they don't consult their records management professionals. This wastes resources and increases risks.
