  3. Ensure departmental compliance with the retention schedule and related policies, procedures, guidelines, or directives.
  4. Work with the Records Manager to resolve questions or confusion about the interpretation or implementation of records policies and procedures.
  5. Respond immediately to legal or administrative notification of holds on destruction of records relevant to litigation, government investigation, audits, or other legal or administrative matters.
