period for your series but you must revise the TESC schedule specific to
your office before using the Disposition Authority Number (DAN) which will be assigned. Contact
the Records Manager to get your unique schedules updated or added to the Current TESC Records Schedules. Once the TESC Records Schedules have

schedules for your office.
