Document Retention & Information Governance for Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Industry E-book

Introduction –

Most, if not all, companies today wrestle with issues of document retention and information governance. How long should you keep your documents? Do you have to keep paper copies? Are digital scans legally admissible? What’s better, paper or digital?
