The Archives and Records Commission is a five member statutory board created in 1947 (67 O.S., Section 305). With certain exceptions, it has the sole, entire and exclusive authority for the disposition of all public records and archives of state officers, departments, boards, commissions, agencies, and institutions.
In most cases, by law, records created or received in the transaction of official business cannot be destroyed by a state agency without prior authorization from the Commission.
The Commission normally meets in January, April, July, and October to consider requests for records disposition from state agencies and to conduct other business.
Contact Jan Davis to discuss placing items on the agenda for the meetings of the Commission.
Special or emergency meetings of the Commission may be called by the Chairman at the request of any member. Staff for the Commission is provided by the ODL Archives and Records Management Division.
