What to Keep in Your Volunteer's File

Like employees, OHSU has a responsibility to keep a file on volunteers. While the Research & Academic Volunteer Services (RAVS) Office maintains records on volunteers, the hosting department/site is responsible for maintaining and tracking duty-specific documentation. Below is a guide to what is kept in the RAVS file, and what should be kept in the hosting department/site's file:

Hosting Department/Site:


  • All education, training and competency completion documentation (e.g. rodent handling training, MSDS review, EPIC training, etc.)
  • Ongoing education and/or training records (at least one training each year) with evident of the volunteer passing the training
  • Department specific orientation record
  • Performance Evaluations (Starting July 1, 2013 RAVS will keep this on file)
  • Corrective Actions or Plans of Assistance if applicable
  • (If volunteer is a minor) Signed Policy: Guidelines to Hosting Minors in the Lab


  • Volunteer Application materials (resume/CV, letters of reference, etc.)
