WA State Archives seeking participants

Washington State Archives is seeking subject matter experts to assist with updating the Human Resource Management (HR) section of the Local Government Common Records Retention Schedule (CORE). They will also review the Payroll activity, which is currently located in Financial Management (and may be moved to HR, depending on feedback.)

In order to encourage statewide participation, and out of respect for everyone's budgets, most input will be gathered by e-mail, but an occasional “in-person” meeting will be held for discussion purposes. Attendees are welcome to participate via PolyCom from any one of the regional branch archives (Bellingham, Ellensburg, Bellevue, Cheney, Olympia).

It begins early in February and will likely take between 4 and 8 months, depending on how energetically the Reference Group is able to provide necessary input.

If you are interested in reviewing and providing feedback on the CORE function of Human Resource Management (benefits, misconduct/discipline, occupational health & safety, performance management, personnel, recruitment/hiring, etc.), and/or the Payroll section (employee compensation, retirement, time sheets, etc.), please do the following:

  1. Email: recordsmanagement@sos.wa.gov, with a subject line of “ Request for Reference Group Participants – CORE/Human Resource Management (and Payroll)”
  2. Enter the information requested in the table provided so it can be copied and pasted it into a spreadsheet.
  3. Indicate how you wish to participate:
    • Actively (as a subject matter expert, reviewing drafts, providing feedback via email, and attending meetings when possible); or
    • Reviewer (staying “in the loop” by receiving significant drafts as the project progresses and sending feedback only if inclined).
    • In the “Area(s) of interest” column, let them know if you would like to contribute to the entire project or to specific areas – such as retirement, misconduct, payroll, labor relations, etc.
