BPM-909 Standard File System

Revised September 1, 1994

Standard File System

A "straight line" filing system is the standard file folder and guide arrangement system recommended for all departments using conventional drawer files. The "straight line" filing system will:

  • Improve records filing and retrieval.
  • Facilitate and simplify filing personnel training.
  • Achieve savings in file folder purchasing.

Colored labels can also be used in several different configurations to aid file identification.

NOTE: Records Management should be contacted for further information on the "straight line" file system and for help in implementing department file systems.
