Abstract

 The simple objectives of establishing Higher Education Institutions (lEls), whether private or public; are teaching, learning and research including community service. Hence, HEIs admit and train students. Records and information relating to students are created for academic, informative and organisational purposes. Lose or misplacement of students' documents, butchered or incomplete results has been observed to be the bane of HEls. This can attributed improper records management practices by the institutions studied thus giving rise to essential records being badly stored, not secured despite the importance of educational records in the management of HE!s. This study involved two HEIs within Lagos metropolis, Nigeria. The study aimed at determining the competency of records management personnel in the studied HEls based academic and educational qualifications. The descriptive survey design was adopted for the study using a questionnaire (observation was made too where necessary). The population of the study was selected using total enumeration, and data collected was analysed by a simple percentile statistical method. Findings revealed that most records managers and officers possess University degrees but no education in records management, no institutional control over creation, maintenance and use of records, no records management policy. The study concluded that there is an urgent need to recruit records management personnel with requisite academic and educational qualifications, and recommended formulation of records management policy, provision of adequate training (and retraining) of records management personnel
