What is Recorded Information Management (RIM)?

  • reduces costs
  • meets business, legal, and accountability requirements
  • ensures appropriate record disposition

  • provides central records management services and support to all departments, agencies, corporations, and commissions within the Government of Prince Edward Island;
  • audits and monitors the development and maintenance of RIM programs in departments;
