To get you started, we have grouped key information you need to be aware of on how we manage work-related information, data and records.
What you need to know
The State Records Act 1998 defines records as any information you make or receive in the course of your official duties and can be in any format, on any media and from any source including personal devices or personal email addresses.
Examples of records
- digital and physical documents
- briefing notes, reports, presentations and working papers or drafts
- emails and correspondences
- messages sent via SMS, mobile apps or collaboration platforms
- data in business systems.
The Act also sets the requirements for how we manage work-related records, information and data in the NSW Government. Briefly these are:
- make full and accurate records of all your work-related activities as part of your daily routine
- secure and protect records
- dispose records legally and appropriately.
