Public Record Office Victoria’s vision statement is ‘Public Records Publicly Available’.  We seek to inspire public servants to keep good records so that we can fulfill our mission: We set the rules for government recordkeeping and provide leadership to foster compliance. We ensure the historical memory of government in Victoria endures and is accessible.
