Survey now closed

The agency recordkeeping survey relating to training practices has now closed.
Thank you to everyone who submitted a response - we had an excellent response rate and the information provided was constructive and will be beneficial moving forward.

We are currently in the process of collating and analysing the information collected. This will help PROV to determine it's direction in developing tools to assist agencies in performing their recordkeeping functions.
Stay  tuned for more information over the coming months.

Recordkeeping in the Victorian Government

How Standards fail
