General Disposal Authority 7: Facilitative, Transitory, and/or Short-Term Value Records, was developed for the use of public offices wishing to dispose of facilitative, transitory, and/or short-term value public records legally.
This General Disposal Authority covers generic classes of records of any format that have only short-term transitory value in their immediate and minor facilitation of preparing a more complete public record. Therefore they are not required for evidential or legal purposes. These records are created through routine administrative and business processes common to most public offices in the course of performing a public office’s primary core business functions, duties and responsibilities.
Public offices may use GDA 7 without requiring any further authorisation from the Chief Archivist. However, if a public office has an agency-specific continuing disposal authority relating to the same records covered by GDA 7, then the existing agency-specific disposal authority should be considered the legal authority, superseding GDA 7. If the public office has no agency-specific disposal authorities relating to such records, then GDA 7 should be considered the legal authority for those facilitative, transitory, and short-term value records.
