PROV is undertaking a review of the mandatory Standards and Specifications set for the Victorian Public Sector. We are now seeking feedback on four draft Standards. Thank you to those who have already sent feedback on previous drafts.
It is proposed that the Principles and Requirements be included in the Standards. Specifications would be used for the detailed technical and process requirements ie. Victorian Electronic Records Strategy (VERS) and Digitisation Requirements. The guidance and examples, which are currently spread across Standards, Specifications and Guidelines, would be moved to a detailed implementation guideline for each Standard. We would be very interested in receiving feedback on this possible change.
Draft standards requiring feedback
Strategic Management Standard
Create, Capture and Control Standard
This is proposed to replace the Capture Standard, Capture Specification, Control Standard, Control Specification and include the high level Principles and Requirements from the VERS 3 Standard. VERS Specifications and Digitisation Specifications would sit under this Standard area.
Note, a couple of the draft documents contain comments, on matters where we are particularly seeking specific feedback. Please email feedback to Alison McNulty, Senior Manager Standards and Policy, firstname.lastname@example.org by COB 18 February 2019. If you would like to attend a group close group Definition A Record Group brings together agencies that have created records documenting similar functions. They may be agencies that are part of the same ministerial portfolio (eg VRG 18 Lands), or have a common function (eg VRG 24 Educational Institutions), or comprise a sector of government (eg VRG 4 Courts). discussion to provide feedback please let Alison know.
Please note that the Storage and Disposal Standards are not included - they will be reviewed at a later date.
