Email Archiving: What The Governor’s Directive Means to the UNC System

Since July, 2009, when Governor Perdue signed Executive Order No. 18 regarding an e-mail retention and archiving policy for Executive Branch employees, there has been much confusion and difference of opinion within the UNC System as to just how this impacts our requirements for archiving and retaining e-mail. How long should faculty and staff email be kept? Does student email need to be retained as well? This discussion led by Paul Hudy of UNC General Administration, will attempt to provide some clarity from a UNC System perspective of what is required of UNC campuses around e-mail retention, as well as outline best practices for campuses to follow.
