Operational Records System (ORS)

An Operational Records System (ORS) is a classification system and retention schedule used to manage an agency’s operational records; those records document the functions for which an agency is responsible according to statute, mandate or policy.  Due to the unique nature of operational records, ORS cannot be developed in a common format.  Rather, these systems are developed on an agency-by-agency basis in consultation with Information Management Archivists from the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan.
