New Report Suggests Australian Government Agencies Are Falling Behind In Their Records Compliance
MELBOURNE, Vic., April, 13 2020 - AvePoint Australia today announced the results of its “2020 Public Sector Records Readiness Report.”
The survey, conducted with technology research and advisory firm, Ecosystem, included 100 records management professionals from small, medium and large government agencies across local, state and federal governments.
Among the study findings:
Agencies are fairly confident they are managing records to applicable records management compliance standards. 60 percent of respondents said they were very confident that their records were managed accordingly and 40 percent said they were somewhat confident they are compliant.
Yet, less than a quarter of government agencies transferred all eligible records to an archival authority in the past year. When asked why they hadn’t, 41 percent of respondents stated they did not know why.
The report suggests many agencies are falling behind in their compliance journey without even realising it.
