Abstract

The study aimed at examining the methods used in disposing off records and finding out the challenges hindering proper disposal of records and suggest recommendations to improve records disposal in Arua District Local Government.

The study adopted a non-experimental, qualitative, explanatory-descriptive approach that was contextual. Data was collected by means of interviewing and observation.

It was noted whereas, it is true that there are national laws regarding records management, these seem to guide the process of disposal in passing, are too old to deal with current realities or are not suited to the needs of the lower levels of local governance realities and interconnections.

To improve records disposal in Arua District Local Government, the study proposed a design of a records disposition policy rather than depending on central government policies that may not consider the unique situation in the district.
