What is RIMS?

The Records & Information Management Service -- or RIMS -- provides generic and bespoke guidance on management issues related to all formats of record.

A record is a physical or electronic document that provides evidence of business activity. Every University staff member manages records to some extent. Your department might deal with, among other types, administrative, fiscal, legal, or research records.

The appropriate management of information is essential for efficient administration, effective corporate governance, and compliance with external and legal requirements.

Our remit covers all range of records and information management topics. For further information, please consult our Good Practice Guides or contact RIMS directly.
