The Digital Records Transformation Initiative was a 3 year APS wide initiative that was part of the Government’s commitment to modernise the public sector using an innovative approach to digital records management.
The Initiative applied to non-corporate Commonwealth entities who were planning to invest in digital records/content management systems and aimed to achieve:
- effective use of new smart technology
- improved productivity through the use of automation
- increased re-use of information assets across Government
- increased compliance with regulations for the management of Australian Government records.
The Department of Finance (Finance) supported a number of market approaches with entities that were looking for innovative records management solutions. The kinds of functionality sought included automated capture and classification of records with minimal user intervention, full enterprise search, and the ability to “manage in place” rather than saving a record into a separate business system.
Finance is pleased to announce that the Digital Transformation Agency has finalised its approach to market. On 25 June 2021, the Minister for Finance, Senator the Hon Simon Birmingham, and the Minister for Government Services, the Hon Stuart Robert MP, published the joint ministerial media release - “Australian company raises the bar for digital data management”
