Does the administration possess the ability to search entire Rutgers’ email traffic and use eDiscovery tools to view or access current or past email?

All requests for access to email are carefully screened by Rutgers Legal and Compliance departments.  Rutgers has been required to provide such data using various tools in the past and the requirement here is not changing.

Rutgers email administrators have always had the capability to access account holder’s email but have only done so under direct guidance of Rutgers Legal in response to a subpoena, eDiscovery and OPRA requests. Additionally, Microsoft keeps strict records on who accesses accounts, which cannot be modified by Rutgers.
