PROV's Appraisal and Documentation Team in collaboration with the Magistrates’ Court of Victoria is developing a new records retention and disposal authority (RDA) for the Court. PROV invites stakeholders to review and provide feedback on the exposure draft.
The aim of the RDA, once issued as a Standard, is to specify records required as State Archives and to provide for the lawful disposal of records not required permanently after specified periods.
About this draft RDA
The RDA features a ‘rolled up’ structure, the primary functions of the Court are described in detail, followed by broad record classes based on retention periods.
The functions are described as per the following:
- Criminal Jurisdiction
- Civil Jurisdiction
- Municipal Electoral Tribunal
- Family Law
- Family Violence/Intervention Orders
- Court Administration
- Programs & Services
- Legacy Records
Feedback on the draft RDA
The exposure draft RDA is available below, along with a report outlining the background, scope and appraisal recommendations:
We would appreciate feedback on the following:
- are the retention periods reasonable?
- is the language used in the RDA clear enough?
- can you identify any gaps in the RDA coverage?
Please provide your feedback to email@example.com by COB Friday 2 October 2020.
