How long should we maintain our FLETA accreditation materials?

The FLETA Procedures and Standards Manual 2020 Edition states:

The FLETA Board declines to establish a policy for applicant accreditation records retention; the Board views this as an internal TO matter. It is recommended that the applicant maintain the accreditation files for the current period until the Board has made a determination of accreditation. Following the awarding of accreditation, organizations may retain any directives/policies that remain valid into the subsequent reaccreditation cycle. Supporting evidence is specific to each year of the current reaccreditation cycle. (pg. 33)
