While the 2016 submission period has closed, Check-up Digital can still be used for reporting, as well as measuring your agency's digital information management maturity before the next submission period.

About Check-up Digital

Check-up Digital is a practical online survey developed by the National Archives of Australia to help Australian Government agencies gauge their digital information management maturity and set clear direction for improved digital practices.

Check-up Digital focuses on business benefits. It supports the Commonwealth Government's priorities of 'digital by default', digital transformation and improved efficiency. It is derived from National Archives' and international standards, policies and guidelines and reflects a risk-based approach to information management so investment matches business risks and the value of information assets.

Check-up Digital measures only the digital aspects of information management and is divided into three sections:

  • optimising business outcomes
  • addressing risk
  • managing business systems

Completion of Check-up Digital will help you to:

  • improve awareness of what mature practice information management looks like
  • identify pathways to improve your agency's digital information management
  • set priorities for next steps to increase digital information management maturity
  • measure improvements and progress against the Digital Continuity 2020 targets
  • build a business case for resources to improve business outcomes

To complete assessments, we recommend agencies consult widely, gaining input from all relevant areas such as security, ICT, senior executives and business units.

If you work for an Australian Government agency, you can log into 'Check-up Digital' or request access.

Australian Government agencies can use Check-up Digital at any time as a planning and priority setting tool for your agency or for specific parts of your agency.

For reference only: Check-up 2.0

Check-up 2.0 was an online questionnaire used by Australian Government agencies to self-assess their information and records management capability from 2011 to 2013. As part of the Australian Government's Digital Transition Policy, agencies were required to submit annual assessments to the National Archives. Check-up 2.0 was replaced by Check-up Digital in 2014. The Check-up 2.0 questions are provided here for reference purposes. There are 33 minimum requirements questions. In the full set there are 77 questions, including additional recommendations for information and records management and requirements for records of high risk business.
