Retention and disposal:

Records are destroyed upon termination/departure of DeCA personnel or when superseded. Electronic records are manually deleted from the agency virtual file cabinet under the supervision of agency records managers upon supersession of the record. Paper records are shredded using a cross-cut shredder that reduces the records to confetti form or better upon supersession of the record.
