Have your say on our next policy for government

The National Archives wants to hear your thoughts on the exposure draft of our next policy for Australian Government agencies.

Your feedback will inform the development of the final policy and its supporting products and advice.

About the new policy

Building trust in the public record: managing information and data for government and community is a policy to improve how Australian Government agencies create, collect, manage and use information assets.

The policy outlines key information management requirements for Australian Government agencies. It also identifies actions that agencies can take to build information management capability and address areas of lower performance.

Building trust in the public record: managing information and data for government and community will take effect from 1 January 2021 and will follow the Digital Continuity 2020 policy, which concludes on 31 December 2020.

About the supporting products

The National Archives will progressively develop and release supporting products and advice to help agencies implement the new policy.

We encourage you to provide feedback on an initial list of proposed products and advice for development.

Your responses will help us prioritise the development and release of products and advice during the policy period in accordance with a publicly available release schedule.

How to comment

The National Archives welcomes all feedback on the exposure draft of the new policy and the list of supporting products and advice.
