2016 Submissions to commence from 1 July 2016
Check-up Digital 2016 will be open for submissions from 1 July to 30 September 2016. Agencies are encouraged to participate again in this important initiative and take the opportunity to measure improvements and progress against the Digital Continuity 2020 targets. This will also help guide the further development of resources and future initiatives to assist agencies as they progress to digital information management maturity.
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 value of information assets.
Check-up Digital measures only the digital aspects of information management, so overall agency ratings may differ from Check-up 2.0, especially those agencies that are mainly paper-based.
Check-up Digital is divided into three sections:
- optimising business outcomes
- addressing risk
- managing business systems
It 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
- 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 for three years from 2011 to 2013. As part of the Australian Government's Digital Transition Policy, agencies were required to submit annual assessments against the Check-up 2.0 'minimum requirements for basic information and records management' 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 'requirement for records of high risk business' as well as the minimum requirements.
