Check-up 2.0 – a tool for assessing your agency's information and records management
Check-up 2.0 is a secure, web-based application for Australian Government agencies to assess their information and records management capability. The Government Digital Transition policy requires that all agencies do an annual whole-of-agency assessment for three years between 2011 and 2013. This year's assessments were due for submission to the National Archives by 30 August 2013.
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.
