Recordkeeping for the Public Sector

OUR TRAINERS

Get in touch information is loading

Overview

As technology is fundamentally changing the way that we work, it’s also requiring changes to recordkeeping practice and procedure to ensure that the records received and/or generated by public sector agencies are dealt with in accordance with the Public Records Act 2002 (Qld). 

The central risk for public sector agencies is failing to ensure that recordkeeping practice and procedure are up to date with changes in technology and work practice, causing compliance with the Public Records Act to suffer, which then can lead to serious legal and even reputational consequences.

This course will set out the key recordkeeping requirements and obligations established under the Public Records Act, the recently introduced Records Governance Policy and the relevant Information Standards , examine the key compliance risks presented by technological and work practice changes, and set out steps that public sector agencies can take to mitigate these risks.  The course will also examine the key emerging issues and trends in this area.
