IMPLEMENTATION OF THE NATIONAL RECORDS MANAGEMENT POLICY

The much awaited National Records Management Policy for government was implemented by the Public Service Commission through  Circular no. 10 of 2011.

This joint effort by the Public Service Commission (PSC) and the Ministry of Information in particular, the National Archives to ensure that the standard of records management across Government is strengthened.

Effective from 1st January 2011, all Permanent Secretaries and Heads of Departments are responsible for effectively implementing the Policy and integrating the guiding principles within their recordkeeping systems.

One of the main issues of concern for the National Archives is the poor management of the “corporate memory” of government kept in registries of departments & ministries.

This is evident when the officers of the National Archives carry out surveys in respective registries.

The Permanent Secretary for Public Service, Mr Parmesh Chand reiterated through a media release that most officers do not recognize records as vital sources of information and this is one of the major factors hindering Government’s attempts at achieving demonstrably high levels of accountability, transparency and good governance.

The major task at hand for the National Archives is to monitor the implementation of the policy at the same time assist government departments and ministries strengthen recordkeeping practices.
