Scheduling Databases

Do you schedule your databases on a case by case basis or do you expect the users/administrators of the databases to figure how to apply the retention schedule to the records in their database?

For example, NARA describes the inputs, outputs, data and metadata of each database and gives a retention and disposition for each.

Other institutions just list databases in the description of a records series as a possible format.

What does your institution do?

We scheduled our databases on a case by case basis.
