Victorian Taxi Directorate improving recordkeeping practices

The Victorian Taxi Directorate was awared a certificate of commendation in the Sir Rupert Hamer Records Management Awards 2011 for improving their recordkeeping practices.

As the taxi and car hire industry regulator, the Victoria Taxi Directorate is required to handle large volumes of records, mostly in hardcopy format and often containing personal or sensitive information. The Taxi Directorate manages over 150,000 Multi Purpose Taxi Program members and regulates 51,000 accredited drivers, over 3000 taxi operators, 7500 commercial passenger vehicle licences, and at any given time, manages almost 500 linear metres of active hardcopy records.

In mid 2008 management recognised a business need to improve the compliance and efficiency of the Taxi Directorate recordkeeping practices. After ongoing consultation, the project was launched in early 2009 with the objective of fostering a responsible recordkeeping culture capable of establishing and maintaining a single records collection through the use of TRIM.
