This BPPM revision includes the following change:

Retention of Electronic Mail 90.03

Revised state regulations (WAC 434-662) require University departments and personnel to retain in electronic form those e-mail messages that are records requiring retention, along with attachments related to the records. Printing and retaining a paper copy of such an e-mail message is not a substitute for retention of the electronic version.

Refer to BPPM 90.01 for the All-University Records Retention Schedules.
