The Public Record Office Victoria (PROV)
has legislative responsibility to ensure the effective and
efficient management and preservation and use of the state’s public
records. It does this by establishing records management standards
and assisting agencies via the provision of training, consultancy
services and general advice and guidance.
This checklist has been designed to
assist government agencies to fulfil their obligations under the
Public Records Act 1973 and to improve the management of
their records. It was developed with advice from records managers
and in consultation with PROV, selected government agencies and
consultants. The checklist formed the basis for
undertaking the performance audit titled Records Management in the Victorian Public
Sector which was tabled in Parliament in March 2008.
This checklist is only available in pdf format.
