The Artificial Intelligence (AI) Technologies and Recordkeeping Policy was designed to address transparency and accountability concerns in relation to AI implementation and use and to enable explainable AI use. This includes the production of full and accurate records/data, as well as the appropriate management of those records/data in accordance with PROV Recordkeeping Standards.

This policy is a companion to the Approval Processes Policy which covers decisions and actions relating to an approval process (including those conducted by machine learning and related technologies). Public offices should apply its terms in line with the PROV Value and Risk Policy and the Recordkeeping Standards to relevant recordkeeping decisions and practice.
