Resourcing

Adequate Records Management - Outcome 2: Records Management is Resourced

Agencies must employ skilled and experienced records management staff, allocate appropriate budgets and infrastructure and ensure that staff are provided with records management training appropriate to their responsibilities.

Sufficient allocation of resources is a vital component of a comprehensive records management program.

Agencies must establish records management resources appropriate to their business and legislative needs. Records management practitioners need to be suitably skilled, trained and classified according to their records management responsibilities. In addition to staffing requirements agencies must allocate sufficient budgets to support adequate records management programs and sufficient budgeting to enable the establishment and maintenance of appropriate infrastructure to support the program.
