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 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.
