Records Management

About the Program
Cape May County's Records and Information Management (RIM) Program plans, coordinates, and implements county-wide records management activities in accordance with State regulations and guidelines. Through involvement with the RIM program, county departments standardize the ways in which they handle governmental records, properly destroy records that have no legal or historical value, and improve identification of and access to the records they maintain.

The RIM program operates under the direction of the County Clerk, who:
  • Acts as the interface between the County and the NJ Division of Archives and Records Management (NJ DARM),
  • Consults with municipalities and departments on electronic and paper records management issues
  • Coordinates records management shared services with municipalities and the state
  • Develops and oversees county-wide records and information guidelines and policies
  • Oversees storage and disposition of all county records
The Records Management Policy and Procedures Manual (PDF) is designed to provide basic information about public records, the RIM program, and the records management responsibilities of each department and division of Cape May County government.
