Data Migration Description
Currently, the electronic data files reside in diverse locations. Additionally, some of the files are in paper format and some are in electronic format each will remain in their native format. The goal of this migration is to gather all of the relevant electronic Leasing Agreement files into a single location for storage, easy retrieval, completeness and to aid the archival and research processes. The migration strategy is to create a common folder structure on the STREAM Share drive and have all participating people and agencies utilize this structure on a go-forward basis. The existing electronic Leasing Agreement files will also be worked into the new structure for completeness. Once the Leasing Agreement files have been microfilmed at the end of their Retention Period, both the electronic and paper files will be destroyed.
