The importance of record keeping in the public sector should not be underestimated. As a public sector employee, you are legally obliged to keep records detailing your work as part of your organisation’s business activities.
AVELING’s Record Keeping Awareness for the Public Sector course provides employees with guidelines on how to create, keep and maintain public records efficiently as part of their work, as well as detailing why record keeping is important, who has access to those records once they have been created and when they may be disposed of.
- Understand what is meant by a public record and the different forms that one might take
- Understand why record keeping is important and what your responsibilities are to ensure that you are complying with legal and government legislation
- Identify when information received must be saved as a public record and when it is necessary to create a record of information
- Understand the systems that organisations have in place for effective records management
- Identify relevant legislation with regard to record keeping and public records access

Any public sector employee or contractor as record keeping is essential for government organisations to show openness and transparency. As such all employees – even contractors – have a duty to comply with record keeping standards.
