The presentations and podcasts from the Records Managers Forum held 28th March 2018 are now available April 23, 2018

The Records Managers Forum provides an opportunity for NSW public sector records professionals to share stories, discuss issues of current concern and impart strategies on key records and information management initiatives.

The Forum included presentations from:

  • Nicola Forbes, Principal Manager Information Services and Records, Transport for NSW
  • Lewis Dryburgh, Records and Information Manager, NSW Treasury
  • Peter Donnelly, Information Services Officer and Right to Information Officer, Information & Privacy Commission NSW and Michael King, Principal Records Manager, Department of Family & Community Services
  • Catherine Robinson, Senior Project Officer, Government Recordkeeping, NSW State Archives and Records.

Nicola presented the Information Toolkit for Transport Projects recently developed by her unit, Transport Shared Services. The Toolkit comprises a suite of tools designed to assist Project Delivery Offices, including staff and contractors in embedding information and records management responsibilities.

Lewis shared the results of his recently completed Masters Research project which investigated the information management practices in technology start-ups. The information practices of young professionals in IT start-ups which Lewis describes provide interesting insights into the challenges and perceptions we face when introducing recordkeeping practices to new recruits to government.

In their presentation, Peter and Michael introduced the Community of Records Management Professionals – its mission, charter, and benefits for the members, workforce and the sector.

Catherine introduced the Code of Best Practice for Recordkeeping, based on AS ISO 15489.1:2017. Catherine provided a short summary of changes and implications, and also explained the importance of adopting the Code.
