Program Information

The Department of General Services is statutorily required by Government Code 14767 to provide a facility for the storage, processing, and servicing of records. Although agencies are not currently required to use the SRC, it has been providing state agencies with low-cost storage of semi-active and inactive records for nearly thirty years.

The SRC has evolved into a full service facility, which handles accessions, disposals, requests on a 24-hour turn around basis, rush requests, re-files and interfiles for low and semi-active records, and a vital records vault.
