Now that we are back in our Wellington building and into our work for the year here is an update on some of our projects of relevance to the sector.
Our work supporting the Information and records management standard continues and you will see new guidance published this quarter – more about that later in March. Our plan for guidance development is based on our regulatory role as well as what is being asked for by the sector.
Top of the bill is our work with Executive Sponsors. This directly involves the Chief Archivist, Director of Government Recordkeeping and operational staff. The Executive Sponsor’s leadership position is key to improving their organisations information and records management culture.
If you submitted to the Archives 2057 project, thank you! We are now analysing the submissions and will publish our report later in 2017. No doubt there will be focus on the digital environment with the government’s digital push.
Archives digital preservation staff have recently completed another ingest of born digital records into the Government Digital Archive. Ingests such as these are helping us to further develop and refine processes for digital transfer.
Many organisations are transforming their processes digitally. We are working on our own internal standard operating procedures with the arrival (go live day was last Monday) of DIA’s new ECM Cohesion based on SharePoint. This tool brings new opportunities for our own information management and use.
