The effect use of documentary information is one of the essential conditions of administrative efficiency. This is the result of a sound management of the organization, and hence the good management of its archival documents.

In addition, to meet the needs of the administration and researchers, the communal archivist is called to organize and to ensure an intelligent and rational management of documents of which he or she is in charge by means of management tools or instruments, professional methods and procedures.

This management process is applied to documents at their different life stages (life cycle), that is, since their creation, capture,  use as current and semi-current archives, and until their final destination when they are no longer required.
