Update January 2018: These are our old Records Management publications. We are developing a new Framework. Please continue to use them as needed, and contact us if you have questions.
TAHO sets guidelines for the efficient management of state records. These apply to all records created by Tasmanian State and Local government and detail the requirements for the creation, maintenance and use of these records.
Our ongoing review program provides for new and updated guidelines and information management advice so that our products are relevant, timely, identify and respond to contemporary issues, and ensure stakeholder feedback is incorporated into revised products.
Guideline: A defined set of Standards for recordkeeping practice, issued by the State Archivist under the Archives Act 1983. It is the duty of the relevant authority to take all reasonable steps to ensure that the guidelines are complied with.
Advice: General advice to Agencies on contemporary recordkeeping issues. (No associated compliance requirement).
Template: An outline or example of a document type, often including explanatory text providing direction to the author.
Checklist: A comprehensive list of relevant actions, or steps to be taken in a specific order to support various activities.
Other: Additional tools either developed or endorsed by TAHO for use by Government Agencies.
