CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1   BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The preservation of records is one of the main functions of a good secretary in any organization. Preservation of records in an organization takes various forms depending on the size of the organization. It involves the use of different equipment and systems. Normally, records are preserved through filing, indexing and micro filing. Filing is the commonest method for safeguarding important information and records. The efficient running of an office therefore depends largely on the existence of a good and effective filing and correspondence systems.

Filing can be described as the care of records management. The key stone of office organization is the maintenance of comprehensive, simple and efficient filing system. Filing therefore is the process by which records are classified, arranged, stored, so that they may be quickly located when needed. It entails storing records in a secure place and in a manner that permits rapid retrieval. As Onibonoje (1976:115) puts it, “filing is the orderly collection, arrangement and safe keeping of information and prompt retrieval of such information as and when required for any decision. Viewed differently, bathlomew (1974:214) sees filing as involving;“… collecting letters, carbon copies, accounts, forms and documents, sorting them by placing them in folders, binders, drawers etc, for future reference”.

Whatever the meaning attached to it may be, the fact remains according to Denyer and Mugridge (1978:145), that “filing is the basis of record keeping …”Consequently, it should be seen as an independable and to any business organization. The brain of every business as far as retrieval of information is concerned.

Correspondence is equally a very vital aspect of basic office routine of any organized body, be it private, government or club. In each of these organized bodies, letter writing, typing, duplicating and in fact communication represent the core office routine. Correspondence can be said to be communication in writing on subjects of mutual interest to both. The internal and external publics of an organization. The concise Oxford Advanced Dictionary (1974:192) defines correspondence as “communication by letters”. This takes care of in-coming and out-going mails.
Denyer (1980; 274) however sees correspondence as covering:

”… many types of documents including letters, which is probably the most common method of communication between a business and its customers of the public and public organizations”. Carrying out a study of the problems of filing and correspondence systems in offices today is most essential especially as many contracts are lost due to poor filing and correspondence system. Job offers and calls for interviews are lost and staff are denied promotion simply because their files cannot be located. The choice of institute of management and Technology Enugu is informed by the fact that the school has a sizeable number of staff and does a lot of filing of its activities with both the staff students and external publics.
