  • Where can I go to learn more about document management in general? is the industry’s standards and training organization.
  • When can I throw away paper that’s been scanned and emails that have been imported?
    When the project first starts, the general recommendations are to continue keeping the paper until all new P and P have been finalized and adopted, and then the P&P can be followed. The P and P will outline specific retention and disposition for each type of document including transitory documents that will eventually be discarded. Once documents are in Datahaven, the original paper and emails are now the transitory copies of convenience and can/should be discarded per the P and P. Typically, an audit process will be implemented and then after successful ongoing and periodic audits, the paper and original emails can be discarded.
