Due to the importance of the above, a diagnose of management competencies was performed, based on a query made with a survey to personnel responsible for managing the central archives of the Costa Rican public sector. The objective of this paper is to present the results of the study performed. Some of the results that this diagnosis showed are that respondents agreed that those responsible for central files should be considered managers, thus requiring management skills to their performance.
