The vital records program was rolled out across the University in 2012. This program was implemented to ensure vital records were being managed as per our Business Continuity Plan for Physical Records Recovery. Vital records are deemed essential in restoring the University's functions and legal / financial position following a disaster, such as a fire or flood. They are required to protect the rights and interests of ECU and its employees, customers and stakeholders at all times. These documents are difficult, if not impossible to replace and are original wet signed documentation that is unavailable anywhere else within the University.
One of the key objectives of the ECU Disaster Recovery Plan is to ensure that our physical records are protected through the use of sound storage processes. In the event of a disaster, physically recorded information can then be more effectively recovered and restored.
The following practices are in place to mitigate risks in the event of a disaster:
