Public Record Office Victoria (PROV) strives to improve the state of recordkeeping across the Victorian Government. This objective is pursued, in part, through engagement in research and development (R&D) programs and projects. Much of this important work also aligns to the Victorian Electronic Records Strategy (VERS).
