The Appraisal Statement specifies in summary the records of government administration required for permanent retention as State Archives.
It is designed to:
Support consistent and transparent appraisal by Victorian government
Assist government agencies to undertake appraisal
Communicate our collecting objectives to our stakeholders
Describe in summary the types of records we will preserve as Archives for future discovery and use.
Government agencies undertaking appraisal will be expected to address the statement’s permanent record characteristics in the development of disposal authorities submitted for the approval of the Keeper of Public Records.
The Approval Processes Policy was developed to address the increasing complexity of creating and managing full and accurate records of approvals processes due to the wide range of technical solutions and the increasing use of automation and machine learning.
The Issues Paper was used to develop the Recordkeeping Policy: Mobile Technologies which provides principles for making decisions about the use of mobile technologies for recordkeeping across Victorian government.
The Value and Risk Policy provides PROV's position on taking a value and risk-based approach to resourcing and implementing records management programs and initiatives.
The Value and Risk Policy was developed in recognition of the need for Victorian public sector agencies to prioritise actions due to resource and other constraints when implementing the mandatory Standards issued by the Keeper of Public Records.
