Our approach

The Skupsky Retention Method is the method for preparing a records retention schedule developed by Donald S. Skupsky, JD, CRM, Information Requirements Clearinghouse, Denver, Colorado.

The Skupsky Retention Method includes the same components found in traditional records retention programs. It differs more in the process than the appearance.
