INSEP is responsible for maintaining its archives, as set out in the decree n°79-1037 of 3 December 1979 and the Jospin memorandum of 2 November 2011. The Archive team is in charge of managing the documents and knowledge produced and received by INSEP as a whole. Its primary duties involve collecting, filing, storing and communicating administrative and medical archives. In addition to these documents, which are essential to enable the institute to function properly, the team also preserves a legacy collection made up of historical archives from the Joinville military school that constitute INSEP’s institutional memory.
