Status of Annual Reports for District Attorneys


  • State agencies and colleges and universities with an approved RDA may destroy their obsolete records in accordance with retention guidelines.

  • Agencies, however, must submit to the Alabama Department of Archives and History (ADAH) a brief Annual RDA Implementation Report (Annual Report), which provides records destruction and other general records management documentation.

  • This documentation is incorporated by the Archives’ staff into a summarized report for review by the State Records Commission at its biannual meeting.

    To determine if your agency has submitted its annual report, view the “Status of Annual Reports by Agency.”

  • Contact the ADAH staff for questions: (334) 242-4452 or records@archives.alabama.gov.
