Review of PROV Standards & Specifications
Between 2009-2011, PROV worked with people from many Victorian Public Sector agencies to develop a comprehensive set of Standards and Specifications. PROV conducted a survey in 2016 regarding their quality and usability, with feedback being that they were generally of a high quality but were difficult to apply due to:
- the number of requirements;
- some confusing and complex wording;
- some differences in the tone, language and level of detail between Standard areas; and
- the need to comply with both the Recordkeeping Standards / Specifications and the VERS Standard / Specifications.
To address these issues, PROV proposes merging the Recordkeeping and VERS Standard Frameworks (VERS will continue as a Strategy); combining the Capture Standard area with the Control Standard area and reviewing the Principles and Requirements across all Standards and Specifications (apart from the Disposal area which has been undertaken recently).
