Confidential destruction


The Finance Division holds the official copy of accounts receivable records. Departments and offices need to retain their copy of accounts receivable records until they have reviewed and accepted the corresponding financial reports from the Finance Division (usually in PeopleSoft). Then confidentially destroy the records. Departments and offices may destroy these records immediately after accepting the financial reports or at the close of every fiscal year.
