Control Number

Any department sending destruction or storage materials to the Records Center must receive a control number for each set of records before delivery.

Once you have received a control number from the Records Center, please write it somewhere on each box (whether the box is for destruction or storage).

In order to get a control number you must contact the Records Center and submit the proper information about the records that are to be transferred. Box transferral requirements can be found within this web site. If proper procedure is not followed and you do not provide Physical Plant with a control number, Physical Plant will not accept a delivery work order from your department. If your department decides to do a self-delivery, the Records Center will not accept records that are improperly boxed, unlabeled or un-referenced with a retention standard.
