PROS 11/01 S2 Storing and Managing State Archives Specification covers the activities associated with archival storage of state archives (in digital and hardcopy formats) on behalf of the Keeper of Public Records.

This specification only applies to Victorian government agencies if they:

  • are appointed under section 14 of the Public Records Act 1973 as a Place of Deposit (POD); and
  • have an agreement with Public Record Office Victoria in place to store and supply ongoing access to state archives (i.e. public records identified within disposal authorities as being of permanent value) on behalf of the people of Victoria.

Please note this Specification has been superceded; the current Specification is PROS 20/02 S2 Places Appointed to Store and Manage State Archives Specification
