Data Migration Description
No current migration of data needed, but in the event, data migration will occur when support for the existing file format is deemed obsolete or when software or hardware system changes require the movement of this electronic data from a specified format to a different file format. Annual reviews of this data will be conducted by DOHR's Records Director to ensure file formats are functional and operational. In the event migration is needed, the IT section and the Records Director will develop a solution to move data to a current file format that is appropriate to the RDA retention requirement for that specific data. This migration may include translation of the data to a current file format, conversion to an acceptable current file format to preserve the integrity of the information of the data, or movement of the data to a legacy architecture that maintains the environment where the format is considered current as long as this effort has full functional and operational support
