How does your district manage files in GDrive when someone leaves?

As we move to the cloud, we have found that new issues have arisen with regard to ownership and access.  Ideally, I'd like any departing staff to sort out who should take over ownership of all files, sites, groups, etc. but that is not always possible.  Google does offer a way to mass reassign ownership of all things Google when an account is deleted but my experience with this is that it quickly junks up the new owner's drive with lots of unneeded material.

Does your district have a procedure on this?  What about data retention in general?
