Current projects update

Our Digital Archive Program is a significant project currently being undertaken by PROV staff to update and improve our entire digital archiving environment. The implementation of the new digital archive will mean faster digital ingest and enhanced capability to describe, preserve and provide access to public records.  

As a result of this work, we’ve had reduced capacity to take on new record transfer and Retention and Disposal Authority (RDA) development projects. We had hoped to be able to return to our usual level of service by early 2020, however due to the Digital Archive Program taking a little longer than anticipated, we now won’t be able to take on new project work until the second half of 2020.    

Upcoming projects

If you have any plans for transfers or RDAs in the next few months, you can take this opportunity to get a head start by pre-determining your agency’s needs and requirements, and familiarising yourself with the relevant guidance on our website:

•    Physical records transfer step-by-step
•    Digital records transfer step by step
•    RDA development step-by-step.

Then once you are ready to commence your project, please contact us from August 2020. By then our Digital Archive Program work will be complete and we will be in a better position to assist you.
