PROS 10/10 G2 Managing Records of Outsourced Activities Guideline explains how agency contract managers can manage recordkeeping obligations by including records management clauses in contracts with organisations performing activities on behalf of government.

This guideline applies to the development of records management clauses for inclusion in contracts or agreements for outsourcing activities to external service providers. It can also be helpful when drafting legislative instruments to privatise government functions. While this guideline doesn’t relate to an agency outsourcing activities to another Victorian government agency, the draft clauses can be used in such contracts to clarify recordkeeping responsibilities
