In an office, storing data for a long period of time can cause any storage area to get full after a period of time. In my workstation, I teach the barangay secretaries to make proper disposal of their documents. There are files that are permanent and they shall not be ever be destroyed. They shall remain in the inactive files but never to be destroyed. There are documents however, that can be allowed for data destruction. These documents remain in the inactive files but after a given period of time, say five or ten years, they can already be destroyed. The destruction of documents are to be made under the supervision of a unit head or manager. For proper records management, data shall be handled and disposed of properly.
