What is records disposal?
Once public records are no longer required by a Victorian government agency for current business use, the agency will need to decide whether the records should be:
- stored by the agency pending destruction or transfer
- transferred to another agency
- transferred to PROV to be preserved as state archives or
Collectively all of these actions are known as records ‘disposal’.
See Disposal Standard for further information.
Looking ahead to a busy 2018-19 we are pleased to be working with a number of agencies on Retention and Disposal Authority (RDA) projects.
However our capacity to take on new project work will be reduced until April 2019 as we focus on our Digital Archive Program of work.
If you have any plans for developing RDAs in the next 12 months, please take some time to think about your agency’s needs and requirements, and familiarise yourself with the relevant RDA development guidance on our website.
Then once you are ready to commence your RDA project, please contact us from April 2019.
