The purpose of this policy is to define Information, Records and the organisation’s information management programme.
The organisation uses information to run its operations, to protect and grow its assets, and to service its customers. As such the organsation has a responsibility to maintain records that provide accurate evidence of operations, activities and decisions.
The effective and compliant management of records and information requires the organisation to:
- Mitigate the risks associated with records and information management.
- Promote access to relevant information.
- Ensure care, custody and control of records to protect the legal and financial rights of the organisation.
- Retain records as long as, and only as long as, required to satisfy legal, regulatory and organisational requirements.
