State Records of South Australia, within the Attorney-General’s Department, is currently developing the new Archive Strategy 2019 to 2022. This is the first strategy for the State Government Archive.
The vision at the heart of the strategy is that the archive is valued by South Australians and stakeholders, actively preserved, readily accessible and managed sustainably. This vision is supported by outcomes, which will define State Records’ priorities over a four year period.
While the strategy outlines how the archive will be managed, the Appraisal Policy and Objectives define which records should form part of the archive. State Records is updating the Appraisal Policy and Objectives, which were first issued in 2003.
