Check-up 2.0 is a secure, web-based application for Australian Government agencies to assess their information and records management capability. All agencies are required to complete and submit an annual self-assessment to the Archives.

Check-up 2.0 is divided into strategy and practice parts, with various sections and questions in each. The questions are grouped into five types of assessments:

  • minimum requirements for information and records management
  • additional recommendations for information and records management
  • complete assessment which combines minimum requirements and additional recommendations
  • requirements for records of high-risk business recommended by the Archives for each area of high-risk business
  • requirements for a business information system.

Questions in Check-up 2.0 are derived from:

  • National Archives standards, policies and guidelines
  • international and Australian standards for information and records management such as ISO 15489 and ISO 16175
  • guidance and policies from other Australian Government bodies.
