Individual ISM application records are maintained and disposed of in accordance with National Archives and Records Administration guidelines and guidance from the Headquarters Department of the Army Subject Area Functional Proponents as follows:

Central Issue Facility (CIF): CIF data is maintained on-line by the Installation Support Modules system for a period of two or more years (data creation through the end of the fiscal year plus two more fiscal years). At the end of the period (2+ years), records are automatically deleted by purging.

In/Out Processing (In/Out Proc): In-processing checklists (automated) are purged from the system by the Installation In-Processing operator upon completion of in-processing by the Soldier.

Transition Processing (TRANSPROC): Historical data pertaining to Soldiers separating from Active Duty will be maintained for a period of two years from separation date. After two years from separation date, the records are automatically deleted by purging. The records generated by Army Review Board Agency are maintained indefinitely. Copies of separation records (DD Form 214/215 and orders) are maintained in another Army automated system (iPERMS) for a period of 62 years at which time they are automatically purged from the iPERMS. The retention period for records in iPERMS is 62 years after the date of retirement, discharge, death in service, or 62 years after the completion of military service obligation. The date for transfer of ownership of the iPERMS records to the National Archives is 62 years.
