The title of S-1889 was drawn from two function series of the “Peacekeeping Headquarters Retention Schedule,” v. 2, August 2011, Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO) and Department of Field Support (DFS): Information Management (PKH.INM) and Public Information and Communications (PKH.PUC).
S-1889 contains records relating to the creation, management and dissemination of DPKO and DFS materials that promote the department’s work (PUC). S-1889 also contains records relating to the management of records, information and knowledge in field missions; the use of communication systems and information technology in field missions; and geodata and cartography in field missions (INM).
Records consist of memoranda and briefs about: policy for records management at DPKO headquarters and in field missions; cooperation between DPKO and the Department of Public Information (DPI); and relations between DPKO and the media. Additionally, there are DPKO-issued standard operating procedures on such topics as the reporting of casualties, the submission of situation and incident reports, and public briefings relating to sexual exploitation and abuse in peacekeeping missions.
Also included are: press releases issued by peacekeeping missions; media digests and analyses of national and international news sources, compiled by the Public Information Offices of peacekeeping missions; and plans for the communications infrastructure in peacekeeping missions. Maps and graphical sketches of the peacekeeping host country depict: the deployment of Military Observers, Member State-supported contingents, and mission Team Sites; disarmament sites; zones and areas occupied by military factions; and sectors and geo-political boundaries.
