Corporate Governance

‌"A cynic is a man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing"

Oscar Wilde

RM_Wordle2Records are an important corporate asset and must be treated as such: controlled, protected and, above all, valued.

The records management team is here to assist you in managing you records effectively, efficiently and in accordance with the law.

We also form part of the wider Information Governance team to provide training and raise awareness of information matters across the University.
