Frequently Asked Questions

If you have questions about surplus property or dedicated storage, contact surplus@nova.edu.

If you have questions about records management, contact records@nova.edu.

University records are currently stored with two vendors: Graebel and Iron Mountain. A final transfer of records to Graebel from Rebro / Secure Storage is scheduled for March 2013. Contact records@nova.edu if you have questions about records location.

Transfers to Graebel require a Records Entry Listing form (Excel file) and a Work Order form (Word file). Instructions are available here.

Transfers to Iron Mountain require a user account. Contact records@nova.edu if you do not have an active IM Connect account and want to transfer records to Iron Mountain.

Attachment B of the Records Policy is a Records Retention and Disposition Schedule, which will be published on this website. In the meantime, please limit disposals to external publications, duplicates, drafts, and other types of miscellaneous papers or correspondence without official significance. Always request a certificate of destruction from your shredding vendor, and send a copy to records@nova.edu. If you have a question about retention requirements for any type of record, contact records@nova.edu.

The records manager is reviewing and consolidating several existing inventories. This process will result in a centralized inventory, which will be maintained in Business Services. You can support this project by sending a copy of your internal box lists or records inventory to records@nova.edu.

We are working toward self-service selection of surplus property. Contact surplus@nova.edu for more information.
