Hoping fellow Records Managers can advise on what their retention and
disposal policies say about the retention of various Fraud files. There seems
to be 2 main approaches:
*All Fraud Investigation Files (regardless of outcome)- destroy 6 years
*Split according to outcome: e.g. Fraud Not Established 2 years/ Fraud
established: No sanction 3 years and sanction or prosecution: 6 years
Some authorities also seem to split out 'interview under caution tapes'
and 'surveillance logs'- and apply a generic 1 year while others file them on the
main investigation file and destroy them in line with the case.
Any feeback on what other authorities do would be much appreciated.
