Statement of compliance with the Record Keeping Plan

The University is committed to records management practices that comply with relevant legislation and are in line with good professional practice. In accordance with the State Records Act 2000, UWA has a current approved Record Keeping Plan (RKP) and an approved Sector Disposal Authority (SDA) in place. In line with the approved RKP, UWA continues to develop and implement formal record-keeping policies, processes and a technical training program, which is readily available to staff to assist them to meet their record-keeping responsibilities.

In 2014, 491 staff received record-keeping training. The training program comprises group presentations, online supporting documentation, adhoc workshops and one-to-one training.

Significant record-keeping improvements and achievements in 2014 include:

  • the development and approval of a University-wide Information Technology/Information Management strategic plan which recognises information as a University strategic asset;
  • the implementation of the first phase of the UWA Institutional Research Data Store (IRDS). A collaborative project between the UWA Library, IT Services, Information Governance Services and Faculties for the management of electronic research data; and
  • the continued implementation of TRIM* for electronic document management to business units across the University.

* TRIM is the official electronic document and records management system of the University.
