Records Working Party
Records are required to be kept and maintained as part of the Public Records Act 2005, which sets out a framework for recordkeeping in public offices and local authorities. Through the use of a shared service, the Councils believe there is value in looking at this as a shared opportunity to utilise best practice and resource.
Currently the terms of reference are being developed, including the development of a road map for the region. A working party has been identified and would initially analyse:
- the current state of records
- the feasibility of a common classification system, identifying best regional practice and the most effective records management system
