Strategic management

Recordkeeping within an agency is likely to be most effective when supported by strategic planning and management. Your agency should plan for future recordkeeping needs, identify recordkeeping responsibilities and manage risks. For even greater impact, records management strategies should be aligned with your agency’s objectives and integrated into core management strategies, policies and major projects.


Strategic Management Standard


Issued by Public Record Office Victoria (PROV), this standard provides a set of mandatory principles for Victorian government agencies regarding strategic management of public records.  Your agency is expected to comply fully with each principle contained in the standard by implementing the particular requirements as detailed in the relevant specification/s.
