Retention Policy Reminder

Aloha, APAN Users!

Below are a few key reminders for all users about the APAN retention policy.

APAN is not an official records management system. 

Inactive communities will be deleted by APAN admins after 2 years of inactivity (or in the case of exercises, 2 iterations) and are not recoverable.  Deleted groups/sites cannot be restored.   Prior notification to community owners will NOT be provided. 

All community owners are required to acknowledge that they've reviewed the Community Owner Guidelines (regarding overarching DOD information security policies, management of content and members). 

Note that the term "content" refers to files uploaded, or new/updated entries to applications such as Verint blogs, wikis, forums and SharePoint lists. Membership additions or changes do not constitute "activity" within a community. 

Reference the APAN Application Governance, for all the details. 

Thank you for your attention to this matter as the APAN team works on maintenance and cleanup of inactive communities. 

Please contact us if you have questions or need assistance.
