Australian Government responds to Tune Review

Thursday, 19 August 2021

Assistant Minister to the Attorney-General Senator the Hon Amanda Stoker today announced that the Australian Government has agreed or agreed in principle to all 20 recommendations made by the Functional and Efficiency Review of the National Archives of Australia.

The Tune Review, undertaken by Mr David Tune AO, PSM, was commissioned to ensure National Archives can continue to undertake its vital role of identifying, preserving and providing access to the most important records of government.

The review addresses the challenges and opportunities National Archives faces in meeting the rapidly changing expectations of government and the public in the digital age.

David Fricker, Director-General National Archives: ‘By agreeing to all recommendations, the Australian Government has made very clear its commitment to securing the nation’s cultural identity and memory, and the democratic process through preserving and making accessible the official record of the Commonwealth.’

‘We will not waste any time implementing each and every recommendation of the Tune Review. This will further strengthen our capacity to preserve the integrity of the government record, particularly as we move further into the digital age.’
