3.16 Retention and Access Requirements for Records

Maintenance of Records

You must maintain and separately identify all records for each Federal fiscal period so that information desired may be readily located.

  • You are obligated to protect the records adequately against fire or other damage.
  • You may store the records away from the recipient’s principal office; however, a list of the documents must be available if needed.
