Records Management in Local Government

Appendix 1: Better practice principles

The following table provides a high level summary of the State Records Commission (SRC) Standard 2 for Recordkeeping Plans. The 6 principles represent good practice expectations of the SRC. They were also the basis for our assessment of recordkeeping practice at the LGs we reviewed. Our listed expectations are not exhaustive and do not cover all of the SRC minimum compliance requirements in Standard 2.

The SRC Policies and Standards are available on the SRO website: Recordkeeping Policies and Standards.
