for Records in Electronic Office Environments
Good management of records and information is fundamental to a well-functioning organization since it supports business activity and provides a basis for efficient service delivery. It also provides the mechanism whereby both the private and public sectors can account for their decisions and actions. Records provide evidence for the public to confirm or claim their public rights and entitlements, as well as providing individuals with evidence to justify government decisions and a mechanism whereby they can have trust in private enterprise. Moreover, good records management is simply good business practice.
