Record Surveys In The North

“NATIONAL ARCHIVES CONDUCTS RECORDS SURVEYS IN THE NORTH”

The staffs of the Archives Administration Unit have just recently completed a two weeks records survey of the Northern Division.

Ms Elenoa Delailakeba and Mr Xavier Fesaitu conducted surveys in forty seven (47) government departments in Labasa and Savusavu during the weeks from 14th to the 22nd of June, 2011.

The officers surveyed twenty nine (29) government departments in Labasa and eighteen (18) departments in Savusavu.

According to the two officers some of the Departments have tried to raise the standards of maintenance and care of the records from their last visit in 2008.
These few departments have taken heed of the advice given by the Survey Team during the last records survey and have taken measures to improve the standard of preserving the records under their care.

However, a common problem that still exists for most of the departments surveyed was the absence of procedures and documentation to guide registry staff, most if not all of them were not aware of the Public Records Act and the Public Service Commission Registry Procedures in place.

The Officers in advising them of the proper processes to guide registry staff in the care and maintenance of public records, have also made them aware of the upcoming Records Management Workshop that will be held in the North in July, 2011 as one of the good chances of expanding their knowledge and skills on how to properly manage and maintain such records.
