- How many locations do you store them in?
- Are locations owned by the Board or leased? Please specify the status per location.

If yes, when does the contract expire?
If yes, what proportion of your records do you store with them?
- How many FTEs are employed to manage the records?
- Is there an annual budget for the records management function? If so, what is it?
