SBA Records Management

The SBA’s records management program ensures that records are properly documented and preserved and that records no longer needed are properly disposed of or retired.

Records management consists of three lifecycle stages:

  • Creation or receipt of a record or document

  • Maintenance and use of records

  • Archiving and disposing of records

SBA staff are responsible for records management. As Federal employees, our obligations are to ensure that each stage in the lifecycle of records is recognized, preserved and properly disposed.
