1. Introduction and purpose

This Standard specifies requirements for the management of Northern Territory Government (NTG) records and information. This Standard covers all information assets in any format and in any system owned or managed by public sector organisations (PSO) as defined in section 5 of the Information Act 2002 (the Act).

This Standard assists chief executive officers, senior managers, system administrators, records managers, and all personnel responsible and accountable for creating and keeping evidence of the operations of a PSO.

A record is a piece of information which has been created or used by a PSO to come to a decision, formulate advice, conduct a transaction, or in some way document government business.

Records and information management support business operations and accountability requirements by ensuring the creation, maintenance, useability and sustainability of records and information needed for short and long term business operations.
