The National Archives of Australia advises our new policy Building trust in the public record: managing information and data for government and community was released on 25 November 2020.
The new policy takes effect from 1 January 2021 and will replace our current Digital Continuity 2020 policy (DC2020) which concludes at the end of this year. The new policy supports a holistic approach to information and asset management. It will continue to improve information management capability within the Australian Government (Cwth) to meet current and future needs for trusted, authentic and reliable records, information and data for government and community.
National Archives is committed to engaging with agencies, government and industry more broadly to ensure the policy’s successful implementation. A range of supporting advice is available now, with further advice to be provided throughout the policy period to help Australian Government agencies implement the policy.
If you have any queries about the policy or if you work in an Australian Government (Cwth) agency and would like assistance planning for its implementation, please email National Archives at firstname.lastname@example.org.
