Tarrant County Records Management
The Department of Records and Microfilm Services was established in 1982 to improve the quality of microfilm by bringing this process in-house and also to centralize the management of Tarrant County’s inactive records at a Records Center. On July 21, 1992, Tarrant County Commissioner’s Court passed an active and continuing records management program consistent with the Local Government Act and in the interest of cost-effective and efficient record keeping. This program was strengthened in 1998 when Information Technology implemented an Electronic Document Management System that archives and manages the lifecycle of electronic documents.
To provide the services and assistance necessary to achieve the goals of Tarrant County’s Records Management Policy of creating, using and maintaining records more efficiently and economically from their point of creation to their final disposition.
Records Management provides Tarrant County user departments with records storage, retrieval and retention management for inactive paper records, document imaging for image capture from source paper and microfilm and an enterprise wide total content management system that allows departmental users to index, archive, retrieve and manage the lifecycle of documents in an enterprise repository.
