The Building trust in the public record: managing information and data for government and community policy came into effect on 1 January 2021.
The policy identifies key requirements for managing Australian Government information assets (records, information and data).
It helps Australian Government agencies improve how they create, collect, manage and are able to use information assets.
The Australian Government relies on well managed information to better support, protect and serve the community. The policy complements and supports Australian Government agendas to:
- digitally transform Australian Government services
- protect Australian Government information assets
- maximise the use and re-use of Australian Government information assets.
The National Archives is progressively developing and releasing supporting products and advice to help agencies implement the policy. These are being released in accordance with the publicly available release schedule (PDF 164 KB), for the 2021-22 financial year. This builds upon the first schedule ending 30 June 2021, to provide a comprehensive list of existing, updated and new, products and advice.
We encourage agencies to share any products or advice that may have broader application in support of the policy actions. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your feedback and suggestions.
