  5. Standards include… • Recordkeeping Professional standards • Sectoral standards • Competency standards • Industry standards – that impact on recordkeeping • Industry standards – to which good recordkeeping can contribute

  6. We are not alone…

  7. Standards can… • Support efficiency, consistency, integrity, interoperability etc. • Allow us to co-operate and benchmark as professionals • Provides us with the framework to argue for resources/support • Help us speak the language of colleagues in other disciplines • Give us credibility in speaking to other communities • Be overused as a “crutch” • Bamboozle us • Fence us in • Give us reach/influence beyond our immediate sphere • Allow suppliers to hoodwink us • Help us to influence suppliers

  8. Standards allow us to influence suppliers

  9. Rallying to the standard doesn’t in itself guarantee success…

  10. “… we have yet to gain an adequate understanding of how the modern office functions, how people collaborate, how decisions are made and how information is generated, shared used and maintained. Recordkeeping standards and practices will be difficult to implement as long as there is an absence of standards and practices for managingthe way work is undertaken in the modern office” • McDonald, J (2005) “The wild frontier ten years on” in McLeod, J and Hare, C (eds) • Managing Electronic Records, Facet Publishing, London.

  11. But surely, Australia…

  12. ANAO audit of govt records, 2006 • “[Australian National] Archives should… set minimum recordkeeping standards and requirements and develop further practical guidance. Archives should also coordinate, and periodically publish, details of the legislation, policies, standards, and guidance that impact on entities recordkeeping responsibilities…” • Australian National Audit Office (2006) Recordkeeping including the Management of Electronic Records, Canberra.

  13. We need to map the standards universe • Map elements between standards – a new “Dublin Core” • Map recordkeeping contributions to other standards • Make explicit the core standards that underpin sector and other specific standards • Keep challenging and revisiting the theoretical underpinning of standards • Draw out basic messages for “how-to” guidance and for lobbying suppliers and industry leaders • Look to the horizon - identify opportunities in the wider standards communities • Easy?
