Introducing Check-up Digital

Check-up Digital banner

Check-up Digital goes live for preview on 10 June and is open for submissions from 1 July to 30 September 2014.

Strategic in its focus, Check-up digital plays a role in highlighting the Government’s priorities of 'digital by default', digital transformation and improved efficiency in government. It is derived from National Archives' and international standards, policies and guidelines, which remain unchanged from Check-up 2.0. However, Check-up Digital emphasises digital information management for business benefits.

Understanding your agency's maturity in the digital space will help you gain cross-agency support for digital information management - especially from your agency's senior executives and business areas. To complete your assessment, we recommend that you consult across your agency gaining input from relevant areas, such as security, ICT, senior executives and business units.

Check-up Digital measures only the digital aspects of information management maturity – so your agency's overall rating may differ from Check-up 2.0, especially if your agency is predominantly paper-based.

The Archives has been consulting with agencies during Check-up Digital development to produce a practical and intuitive tool for you to assess your digital information management maturity. Based on your feedback from Check-up 2.0, in Check-up Digital we have developed a new user interface, new-look reports, a digital agency head sign-off process and the ability to upload supporting documents as evidence of your chosen rating. But many features remain, such as a place to record your agency-specific comments and justifications, and references to key supporting resources.
